384pp., b/w illus. 2018. An exhaustive study of the development of the battalion, brigade and divisional signs of the thirty divisions raised by Kitchener’s appeal for men. While the divisional signs are well known, there has been little authoritative work on the signs worn by the infantry battalions. The book will illustrate the unique cap and shoulder titles used, as well as cloth signs worn to provide easy recognition in the trenches. Each service battalion, of each regiment has a listing, which provides a brief history of the unit and detailed information on the badges worn.
