Price: $23.40
Information about British Army regimental numbers and the dates on which these were issued to soldiers joining British infantry regiments between 1881 and 1914. All sixty-nine British Army infantry regiments are included in this work which charts the issue of regimental numbers and the dates on which these were allocated to men joining the British Army. The author has spent thousands of hours researching British Army numbers and presents here, for each of the sixty-nine infantry regiments, the sequence of numbers as they were issued to men signing up for service in the British Army between July 1881 and 1914. One number and one joining date per year are given for each of the regiments. This is a unique, essential and detailed reference work which will be of benefit to family historians, military researchers and medal collectors alike.
