Maybury in the First World War. The men charged with repairing and maintaining the roads to ensure the safe movement of men and ordnance during the war in France, East Africa, Italy and Mesopotamia. The book contains well over three hundred portrait photographs of the men in “The Roads Corps”. A slim hardback titled in gilt to the cover, 10 inches tall approx., 96 pages.
