Description
 
This book aims to help with the dating of British army photographs from the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th.

It argues that much can be learned from such pictures, even when the regiment can't be identified, and even without being a military historian.

A head-to-toe examination of uniform and accoutrements identifies possible dating clues, and a separate section gives extra assistance with photos from the two world wars.
