Purple Patches: A Tale Of The Sappers


1 in stock


Particularly scarce first edition copy (Jackson & O’Sullivan, 1935) detailing the personal experiences of the author, T[homas]. H[enry]. Prince.

A member of the 3rd Field Company who landed at Gallipoli, Prince provides, in Purple Patches, a valuable contribution to the ANZAC legend and the part played by that corps.

Black clothbound hardcover in very good condition – the flaws, as pictured, are limited to mottled boards, a neat inscription, faded lettering and lacking the positively rare dustjacket.

Internally, our copy is in excellent condition and a valuable addition to the collection of any Australian militaria historian.
