Regimental Records of the Royal Welch Fusiliers Volume I AND II

£40.00

Product description

This is the first 2 volumes of a 4-volume history of the regiment from its formation in 1689 to the end of the Great War. The RWF is one of only four out of fifty-one English and Welsh regiments of infantry of the line that have remained unaffected by disbandment's, amalgamations and redesignations since Cardwell's reforms at the end of the nineteenth century. This volume covers the period 1689 - 1815, the recording of which has been considerably handicapped by the almost entire absence of letters, diaries or journals of officers who served with the regiment.

The 2nd volume covers the hundred years between the victory of Waterloo and the outbreak of the Great War, 1816-1914. The book is set out in the same way as the first volume, beginning with a chronological summary, which includes the dates of every move of the regiment, and with the narrative providing a running account on a year-by-year basis. On 3rd March 1858, as a consequence of the Indian Mutiny a second battalion was again formed but this one was a permanent feature, so when the Cardwell Reforms were implemented in 1881 the RWF was unaffected, being a two-battalion regiment. From this point on the narrative covers each battalion separately each year. This time the compilers are better served with personal memoirs and diaries, especially the Burmese War of 1885-87; the Boxer Rebellion, 1900; the Black Mountain Expedition, 1891 and the South African War. The regiment saw action in the Crimea (Alma, Inkerman and Sevastopol), the Indian Mutiny, Ashanti in 1874, Burma, S Africa and Pekin. Four VCs were won in the Crimea and two in the Indian Mutiny.This volume has a number of informative appendices: they include the succession of colonels with the service record of each officer.
