Chichester, 1st ed., 1981. 175 pp., 53 photo-plates + maps. D.j., 25 x 15cm. FINE. This book, officially commissioned by the Regimental Association, tells the story of the Regiment from the Baltic Coast at Kappeln, immediately after the unconditional surrender of enemy forces in north-west Germany, Denmark and Holland in May 1945. It follows the Regiment around the world over the next thirty years in places such as Belgium, the Canal Zone and Palestine, the Sudan, Malaya, Aden and Muscat, Libya, Canada, Cyprus, the UK, Germany and Ulster – and in roles as various as armour, armoured reconnaissance and infantry. It traces the social changes over this period and the development of the ‘Regimental Family’.
