Collecting Metal Shoulder Titles Summary

Collecting Metal Shoulder Titles by Ray Westlake

Newly revised and updated, 'Collecting Metal Shoulder Titles' records the titles worn throughout the British Army by units of the Regular, Militia, Yeomanry, Volunteer, Territorial and Cadet forces. Details of some two thousand patterns are set out in the text and illustrated by photographs from the author's unique collection. Ray Westlake is a recognised authority on British Army lineage and gives dates of formation, amalgamation, disbandment and changes in designation for all regiments. 'Collecting Metal Shoulder Titles' is recognised by collectors and military historians alike as the definitive reference work. Today, some sixteen years after it first appeared, the book remains the only reliable guide to an increasingly popular form of collecting. This edition, with two supplements, brings it abreast of the last round of mergers and amalgamations.
