This special re-print edition of Thomas Coke Burnell's book "The Exhibition Dorking" contains a treasure trove of information on this legendary breed of chickens - the famous Dorking. Written in England in 1875, the rarity of original copies has brought forth the demand for this much needed reprint of this important historic work on Dorking Chickens. Included in this short text are the fine details on breeding Dorkings and how they were exhibited at shows in the 19th Century. One of the only books of its kind. Note: This edition is a perfect facsimile of the original edition and is not set in a modern typeface. As a result, some type characters and images might suffer from slight imperfections or minor shadows in the page background.

Dorking in the Great War

From Zeppelin raids to housing refugees and evacuees or from men volunteering to fight or women working in the local Gunpowder factory, Dorking in the Great War looks at how the experience of war impacted on the town, from the initial enthusiasm for sorting out the German Kaiser in time for Christmas 1914, to the gradual realization of the enormity of human sacrifice the families of Dorking were committed to as the war stretched out over the next four years. ??The Great War affected everyone. At home there were wounded soldiers in military hospitals, refugees from Belgium and later on German prisoners of war. There were food and fuel shortages and disruption to schooling. The role of women changed dramatically and they undertook a variety of work undreamed of in peacetime. Meanwhile, men serving in the armed forces were scattered far and wide. Extracts from contemporary letters reveal their heroism and give insights into what it was like under battle conditions.
