Famous Regiments Series, 1st ed., 1968. 134 pp., photo-ills., + ills. D.j., 22 x 14cm. FINE. This uncommon Famous Regiment title explores the chronological history (1758-1968) of the 84th Foot, the York and Lancaster Regiment, and the 65th Foot, the 2nd Yorkshire North Riding Regiment, who amalgamated in 1881 to become a united York & Lancaster Regiment. Here is a regiment which, whilst never seeking publicity, can claim to be the only one with the battle honour ‘Arabia', the only one to be saluted by the guns of Fort William at Calcutta in 1859 after their service in the Indian Mutiny and the only regiment to bear the ‘Union Rose' on their cap badge and colours.
