Patrick, There is a book you might be interested in (no photographs) only line drawings called "Our Regiments and Their Glorious Records" by Charles White. It was published in 1915 and I believe it would be a useful to you. There is lots of information in there about the 1914 army. Each regiment is covered briefly, the main body text can be found to the front and the rear of the book that provides considerably more detail.

Thanks for the post Patrick,

I wish I had the discipline to focus my collecting to a timeframe like you have, I seem to just add quality British badges!

My maternal Grandfather, Pte Harry Morley was KIA with the 1st Battalion, Lincolnshire Regiment on the 8th Dec 1914 after embrakation with the BEF on the 13th August 1914.

I have nothing of his life and service except a copy of his medal record card, a photo of his name on the Menin Gate and on the village war memorial in Ropsely in Lincolnshire where the family came from. However, I have a growing collection of Lincolnshire badges that I treasure as a memory of him and that of my late father who also served in the Lincolnshire regiment.

May your collection grow and honour those of the proud and professional soldiers that were the 1914 BEF.

My best regards Dean.

Hello Pat and welcome to the forum, gald you found it ! Hope that you find plenty of useful reference on here. Why not advertise for the shoulder titles that you are still missing-someone on here may be able to help

regards
