£7.99

Product description

Published in 1965 this slim stapled booklet describes the history of the British Army's 2nd Infantry Division. Illustrated with black & white photographs and drawings.

The 2nd Infantry Division was a Regular Army infantry division of the British Army, with a long history. Its existence as a permanently embodied formation dated from 1809, when it was established by Lieutenant General Sir Arthur Wellesley (later to become the Duke of Wellington), as part of the Anglo-Portuguese Army, for service in the Peninsular War.
The division was associated with the North of England. The divisional insignia, the Crossed Keys of Saint Peter, were originally part of the coat of arms of the Diocese of York, and were adopted before or during the First World War. It was disbanded on 1 April 2012.

The bright red paper cover is lightly marked and there are some water stains at the bottom of some the pages.
