GWR - PLYMOUTH TO PENZANCE VOLUME 3
By Stanley C Jenkins & Martin Loader
The Cornwall Railway was authorised on 3 August 1846 with the aim of constructing a broad gauge rail link between Plymouth, Truro and Falmouth. After many vicissitudes, the railway was ceremonially opened between Plymouth and Truro on 2 May 1859. Meanwhile, further to the west, an entirely separate undertaking known as the West Cornwall Railway had been sanctioned with powers for the construction of a standard gauge railway between Truro and Penzance, which would incorporate parts of the earlier Hayle Railway.
The WCR was completed in 1852, although there was no connection with the Cornwall Railway until 1859. Despite the 'break-of-gauge' at Truro, these two railways formed part of a through route between Paddington and Penzance and,
as such, they were subsequently absorbed into the GWR system as part of the present-day West of England mainline.

BETWEEN THE COAST AND THE WESTERN FRONT
By Sandra Gittins
BETWEEN THE COAST AND THE WESTERN FRONT is a compelling look behind the scenes, focusing on transportation and supply. This fully illustrated book shows the work of the railways, motor and water transport, and the vast numbers of British Expeditionary Force personnel who built, maintained and ran them, also looking at those who worked to ensure supplies of all descriptions were stored, ordered and distributed.
In this area of France and Flanders troops, equipment, guns and tanks were constantly transported to and fro, with the wounded frequently being evacuated, their injuries being aggravated by travelling on uneven roads or facing the threat of shelling and air attacks. Depots for fuel and water were established, plus garages for vehicle repair and maintenance. This fascinating photographic book delves into the vital roles women held, the distribution of food and post, and many other aspects of life and work in the area.

GOODBYE, OLD MAN - ISBN 9780750955973
By Lucinda Gosling
For the first half of the twentieth century, the artist Fortunino Matania captured some of the world's most memorable and iconic moments. From the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 to the coronations of three British monarchs, this Italian-born illustrator recorded almost every major event as' special artist' for popular illustrated magazine The Sphere. The apogee of his prolific output was during the First World War when he produced paintings on a weekly basis, recording in breathtakingly realistic detail the multi-faceted nature of the conflict and often visiting the front in order to gather material for his pictures.
The breadth and quality of Matania's work takes in scenes of trench life, the war at sea, the heat of battle and the war effort at home. Meanwhile, his most famous picture, 'Goodbye, Old Man', quickly became one of the most emotive images of the war.
Admired by some of the finest artists of the period, and familiar to millions around the world, over 100 of Matania's pictures are brought together for the first time in this compilation, introducing the power of his work to a new generation to mark the centenary of the First World War.
A BETTER 'OLE- ISBN 9780750955959
By Lucinda Gosling
The much·loved Captain Bruce Bairnsfather was the most popular cartoonist of the First World War, who captured the spirit and stoicism of the typical British Tommy in his cartoons for The Bystander magazine.
Portraying a series of 'types' ranging from nervous raw recruits to his famous creation the wise-cracking, walrus-moustached grump 'Old Bill` Bairnsfather's trench humour was a morale-boosting tonic during the darkest of times.
The wit and wisdom of his characters found an instant fan base among the magazine's readership, both at the front and among civilians at home, and soon his pictures were being published as portfolios known as 'Fragments from France`, later reproduced on a vast range of merchandise. Old Bill became a star of the stage and the silver screen, while Bairnsfather was created Officer Cartoonist by the War Office and invited to work his magic for the French, Italian and American armies.
A Better 'Ole brings together more than 100 of Bairnsfather's Great War cartoons from The Bystander, which forms part of The Illustrated London News archive, and examines the remarkable career of a man who General Sir Ian Hamilton declared had 'relieved the strain of war' and 'drawn a smile from sadness itself by his skill in poking fun at tragedy'.
