Argylls with General Maude to Baghdad and Beyond

‘Reggie’ Graham joined the Argylls in 1914, was appointed Machine Gun Officer in 1915, transferred with his MG section to the Machine Gun Corps in 1916 and disembarked at Basra (Mesopotamia) in October 1916. Join his grandson, Andrew Graham, as he uses his original diaries, watercolours and letters to bring to life a very junior officer’s view of the longest advance made by the British Army anywhere in World War One. This would lead up to the capture of Baghdad and the Battle of Istabulat on 21/22 April 1917 – an action that Graham and Private Melvin would later be awarded a Victoria Cross for.
