Collecting Metal Shoulder Titles (Kindle)
Newly revised and updated, 'Collecting Metal Shoulder Titles' records the titles worn throughout the British Army by units of the Regular, Militia, Yeomanry, Volunteer, Territorial and Cadet forces.
Details of some two thousand patterns are set out in the text and illustrated by photographs from the author's unique collection.
Ray Westlake is a recognised authority on British Army lineage and gives dates of formation, amalgamation, disbandment and changes in designation for all regiments.
'Collecting Metal Shoulder Titles' is recognised by collectors and military historians alike as the definitive reference work.
Today, some sixteen years after it first appeared, the book remains the only reliable guide to an increasingly popular form of collecting.
This edition, with two supplements, brings it abreast of the last round of mergers and amalgamations.
Overall, this is a very impressive book and the author has managed very well to get so many examples presented. I truly doubt if there will be any other books on this subject written with such a high degree of research and skill. If you have any shoulder titles, then this book is simply essential.Dr Stuart C Blank
