1st ed., 1972. 239 pp., cold., frontis., + 37 photo & other plates. D.j., 22 x 14cm. FINE. The 34th of Foot, raised in 1702, and the 55th, raised in 1755, came together in 1881 to form the Border Regiment. The separate battalions had already seen service in nearly every corner of the globe, which stood them in good stead for the mud of Gallipoli and Flanders, and later the heat in the Desert, in Sicily, in Burma and at Arnhem. This history of the Border Regiment is generously illustrated.
