The AIF Cyclist Corps was formed in Egypt in 1916, and fought in France and Belgium. The book covers the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th Division Cyclist Companies, and then the 1st and Anzac Corps Cyclist Battalions, including the 22nd Corps Cyclist Battalion and the New Zealand Cyclist Battalion. The role played by the two Anzac Corps Cyclist Battalions in 1916-17, and the Australian Corps and New Zealand cyclist units in 1918, when during the last months of the war cyclists were able to undertake numerous reconnaissance and patrolling duties, thus justifying their existence. pp. 176 illusts Honour Rolls, etc. SCARCE #0817 First Edition
