Publisher Description:

The book provides the formation date of each regiment, names of colonels prior to 1751, changes of title, battle honours awarded before 1881 and brief descriptions of uniform and badges worn. Helpful to the collector will be the badge authorisation dates included. With a view to further research, details of important published regimental histories have been noted. The numbering of infantry regiments reached 135 but, come the reforms of 1881, only 109 were still in existence. Much has already been written about these, but recorded here, in many cases for the first time, are details of the 110th to 135th Regiments of Foot and all others that were raised and disbanded, albeit that service was short for many. For easy reference, the text has been set numerically by regiment. Illustrations, most of them in colour, number 146 and include uniform, head-dress, badges and portraits.
