Smile Royal Tank Regiment =100 Years - Just Published

I have just opened my envelope and found a truly marvellous publication, I think this will become one of the standard works to refer to by historians.

Congratulations on a superb piece of reference.

Received my copy this morning, fantastic coverage of the 100 year RTR history in 48 pages! I was proud to wear the RTR cap badge back in 1969-70 (just after the 50 year anniversary!) and it has brought back some great memories.

A well produced 48 page publication with excellent full colour illustrations. The MHS subs are good value for money with journals like this.

P.B.
