Where Did That Reg­i­ment Go?: The Lin­eage of Bri­tish In­fantry and Cav­alry Reg­i­ments at a Glance

SCOTS Heritage Magazine - - Books - By Gerry Mur­phy

Spell­mount, £17.99 In this vol­ume, Mur­phy charts the changes and amal­ga­ma­tions of each Bri­tish Army reg­i­ment fol­low­ing the first sig­nif­i­cant mil­i­tary merg­ers in 1881. Where pre­vi­ous works have de­tailed the struc­tural changes in the reg­i­ments, Mur­phy’s use of a lin­eage chart makes it uniquely easy to nav­i­gate. Util­is­ing bite­size charts laid out by di­vi­sions, this work doc­u­ments the pro­gres­sion of the Bri­tish reg­i­ments. This highly in­for­ma­tive work in­cludes the num­ber of reg­i­men­tal an­tecedents, hon­ours, colours, and in­signia of each reg­i­ment in ap­pen­dices. This is an es­sen­tial work for a mil­i­tary en­thu­si­ast which is di­gestible enough to please a ca­sual reader.
