An Extraordinary Pocket Dictionary

Not a blog post as such; more a note so that I don’t forget about this little book.


This week I discovered that William served during WW1 in Egypt and that he looked after the horses.

It would seem that he must have taken this little book with him during his service as in the front is written his Regt No. and in the back the daily routine.



and the reverse contains the word ‘horse’


It seems rather a coincidence that this page, and this one alone is very tatty, well used and detached from the rest of the book. What at first glance seems like a fairly ordinary book now seems rather extraordinary.
