A Brief History of the King's Royal Rifle Corps 1755 to 1948

£45.00

Product description

The book has dark green cloth-covered boards and spine. The front cover shows the book title and the Corps military badge both in silver. These are encompassed by two lines around the margins of the book, one in red, the other in silver. There are a few scuff marks in the left-hand bottom of the front cover. The spine shows the book title in silver script. The book shows a little bumping to the corners and a little shelf wear especially at the spine and on the top edge. The hinges are in good condition. The pages are well cut and only show a little discolouration. The frontispiece is a black and white photograph of the Corps Colonel-in-Chief, HM George VI. The book contains eight colour or black and white drawings of different uniforms through the years covered by the book, ie 1755 to 1948. There are also seven fold-out maps and two plain maps that illustrate the battle campaigns undertaken by the Corps. Included with the book are two additional short publications that give details of the organisation of the regiment, its history, its Victoria Cross winners and previous Colonels-in-Chief. These are dated 1948 and 1955.
