Default BADGES OF KITCHENER'S ARMY BOOK

Good evening all.

Badges of Kitchener's Army by David Bilton (21 on Amazon - although may find cheaper).

Got this newly published book yesterday and a bloody good reference book it is covers badges/div signs/shoulder titles and has some photo's and images covering regiments and battalions.

Not saying 100% correct (taken him 30 yrs to put together as covering so much) as some sight errors with Welsh stuff, but maybe spot on with your regiment/field.

I would agree with the post. A good guide to a neglected subject.

Cheers, Tim
