Between Two Worlds: A Rajput Officer in the Indian Army, 1905-21: Based on the Diary of Amar Singh of Jaipur by DeWitt C. Ellinwood Jr. ISBN: 0761831134 Published byHamilton Books on February 28th 2005 Pages: 694
Len's Summary: A veteran of the Boxer Rebellion, Singh was granted a restricted commission in 1905. Given a regular commission in 1917, Singh's diaries offer an unusual look at the British Indian Army in the period of The Great War. Dr. Ellinwood, professor-emeritus at SUNY Albany, spoke at the 2005 WFA national seminar at Plattsburgh.
On Saturday March 12 the WW1HA hosted its first ever online quiz night. This was a fun way to get geographically distant members together virtually. We are considering doing this a few times a year.
The next issue of World War One Illustrated (WWOI) will be printed shortly. Members/subscribers should receive their printed issue in the next month or so.
Members are encouraged to participate in the monthly online seminars hosted by the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter; and we plan to announce a gathering of WW1HA members at the National World War I Museum’s Fall 2022 symposium. Stay tuned!
