376 pp, large 8vo (9 3/4" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w drawings, color plates. "(N)ot only a military history of every regiment which was first formed in London, but also describes the uniforms they wore and the various changes and modifications introduced from time to time during more than three hundred years of service. The story of these many regiments is of absorbing interest, whether it is about volunteers, territorials or regular troops, and is enhanced by sixty-six full page illustrations in line in the text, eight in sepia, and twelve superb plates in full colour. There is also an exhaustive index to the many regiments, the date of their formation, colour of their uniforms, and many other details, such as how they got their names, and nicknames. During their long history many famous British regiments whose names are always associated with London have had a continuous and unbroken military record dating from the time of Charles I to the present day, and the story of the part they have played in campaigns all over the world are our British heritage. In studying this lucid and accurate history of regiments which were first formed in London, we can appreciate the important role they have always filled in the pageantry of state occasions and ceremonial parades in which the Guards, Household Cavalry, and the Yeomen of the Guard are part of the London scene." One color plate has tiny corner crease, minor rubbing to boards, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wear - moderate with creases at top/bottom of spine, light to moderate rubbing, light edge wrinkling, a few very small edge tears and tiny chips.
