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