Can any ARRSErs steer me onto good books about officer selection in the British (and Empire) forces 1914-1918. Searched ARRSE, nothing seen. My Great Grandad was a Temporary Gent. I want to know how a hill farmer with a dodgy accent got commissioned. (Apart from not getting killed). The only person he ever spoke to about WW1 was my uncle, who was a young boy. Lions led by lions.
