Default Building a Bibliography.

Hi All

One of our missions for the forum users is to construct a bibliography of titles on British and Commonwealth military insignia;

We are aware of the "wide ranging" titles such as Infantry Collar Badges (Churchill), Head-dress Badges of the British Army (Kipling and King), Collecting metal shoulder titles (Westlake) etc.

what we need is submissions to this thread of the more obscure books on individual unit / corps and books on colonial badges so we can build a list.

here is an example :

The Fifth Fusiliers and it's Badges; Denis Wood (published the author)
printed by Irwin Technical Ltd. London, 1988 129 pp








if you know of titles like these for other units please add them here.

Bibliography will be built here
