The Nyasaland Volunteer Reserve fought with distinction against the Germans in the First World War in East and Central Africa. The N.V.R. defended the country after an initial invasion from German East Africa and later pursued the German forces down into Portuguese East Africa and then back north.
Some were still in action two weeks after the Armistice was declared. The N.V.R. suffered many hardships and losses during this arduous virtually unknown campaign.
