Mesopotamia 1917

The British and indian cavalry made steady progress under Lt-General Maude after the fall of Kut. The 13th found that the skirmishing in the early stages was a plodding business. The later Cavalry actions near Baghdad and further up country were spectacularly successful and contributed to a great feeling of regimental pride despite the loss of life.
