Description
 
A warm regard for the British soldier, the values he served and the regimental traditions that nourished his humanity underlines the information collected in this book. It gives a brief history of each of the former county regiments, lists the battle honours on their Colours, their marches, customs, Victoria Crosses, nicknames, badges, facings, mottoes and memorials and describes their amalgamations and later lineage.

Details of the regimental museum are also given, together with churches where regimental Colours are lodged.

This information is offered in order that others may discover something of the endeavour which preserved Britain's national liberties.
