A clean copy without ownership inscription or other internal marking. 162 pages. The first edition of this book, published in 1915, was called "Sons of the Manse" but as this much longer edition "includes the names of Combatant Ministers and of Chaplains on Active Service who are not sons, as well as the names of many Daughters of the Manse" it was thought proper by the editor to modify the title. Entries include rank, regiment, whether wounded or killed, and the name of the manse they came from. Arranged by presbytery this is a record of the contribution made by the Church of Scotland in the First World War. Quite scarce.
