Leeds Rifles – The Prince of Wales’s Own (West Yorkshire Regiment) 7th and 8th Territorial Battalions 1914-1918: Written in Letters of Gold by Andrew Kirk.

Andrew Kirk (pictured) launched his new book, Leeds Rifles, during an event at York Army Museum in October. The book is a detailed chronicle of the four Battalions of Riflemen who left Leeds for the Western Front and whose full wartime story has never been told. This volume describes their volunteer origins and how they came to be woven into the social fabric of Leeds from where they drew their enduring esprit de corps, discipline and resolve.

It takes the reader on a journey across the Western Front contrasting the First Line Battalion’s lot, to stand in the mud of Ypres and endure all without breaking, with the Second Line Battalion’s ‘blooding’ at Bullecourt and transformation as part of an elite assault Division that went on to occupy Germany. It’s told in part, by those who were there and experienced the fear, elation and the sadness of loss and who took strength from their volunteer ethos and their common origins in Leeds.

All the Leeds Rifles’ main battles are described in detail as are the helter-skelter actions of the Last 100 Days of ‘mobile warfare’ and escalating casualties, when the defeated but still defiant German Army found itself in full and final retreat.

Double Agent Celery – MI5’s Crooked Hero by Carolinda Witt.

This is the true story of Walter Dicketts, an MI5 Double Agent in the Second World War, superbly researched and written by his granddaughter. With Britain braced for a German invasion, MI5 recruited the former Royal Navy officer as a double agent. Codenamed Celery, Dicketts was sent to neutral Lisbon with the seemingly impossible mission of persuading the Germans he was a traitor and to extract crucial secrets. Spirited off to Germany by the Nazis and with his life on the line, Dicketts managed to outwit his interrogators before returning to Britain as, in the Nazis’ eyes, a German spy. He was part of the British double cross team at MI5 that succeeded in duping the Nazis that the Allied D-Day Landings would take place in Calais not Normandy – this remains one of history’s greatest military deceptions and countless more lives would have been lost during those operations without the efforts of these spies.

A mixture of hero and crook, Dicketts was worldly and intelligent, charming and charismatic. Sometimes rich and sometimes poor, his private life was a web of complexity and deception with four wives, two mistresses and six children. Using family and official records, police records, newspaper articles and memories, the author unravels the tangled true story of Double Agent Celery.

Double Agent Celery will be launched on Saturday, 4 November at the Marlborough Pub in Richmond, the original meeting place of Walter Dicketts and Arthur Owens (Britain’s first double agent), codenamed Celery and Snow. This will be the first time of meeting for many of Dicketts’ children and grandchildren.
