Description Free Sample Download
This regimental history was initiated by Major A.R. Jessupís account of the part played by the Governor General's Foot Guards personnel while actively serving in Europe during the Second World War. The regiment decided, however, that the subject matter should be expanded to recount its complete history, taking Major Jessupís fine start as the core of the work.

Major Jessup completed his first draft while awaiting the regiment's repatriation from Europe but despite a dramatic increase in the writing staff it took a further three years to bring the book to publication in 1948. This additional time did allow for minor alterations to be made in the light of information which was not available when the first draft was being written, as well as the addition of numerous wonderful situation / route maps and illustrating photographs. Several of the photographs come in the form of panoramic records of complete companies of the regiment's personnel.

Additional materials in the volume provide a History of the Regimental Rifle Association, while five appendices include a Roll of Honor, listings of Honors and Awards (including citation for valour) and a Nominal Roll for 1940-1946.

High quality scanned images of the whole of the original book. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
