On offer is a fascinating, original circa 1946 manuscript notebook handwritten by noted British author and Vimy Ridge combatant Ulric Nisbet [Captain H.U.S. Nisbet]. The book is comprised of two sections: a 32 page retrospective autobiography titled "Memories of my Childhood". Flipping the book over and there is an 88 page transcription of materials relating to the First World War, the majority about the capture of Vimy Ridge. We note on page two of his War Experiences he was a Captain in the Royal West Kent Regiment and also a Liaison Officer with the 29th Canadians during the battle of Vimy Ridge. Adding further depth to the manuscript are a number of old postcards, photographs and other related ephemera within these pages including some family photographs and an old programme dated 1910 from a school play he acted in playing Orpheus.
