Head-Dress Badges of the British Army by Arthur L. Kipling

Book Description

With the recent death of Hugh King and the disposal of his collection by auction, The Naval and Military Press have republished both volumes of this invaluable work, a reference tool for dealers and auctioneers. First published in the 1970s, this illustrated record of badges worn on every type of head-dress, from the mitre cap to the Shako to the Field Service cap, remains the bible for badge collectors everywhere. Changes in regimental title and dates of amalgamations are given, along with detailed comments for each entry. Volume two covers the period from end of the Great War to 1979 and includes OTC badges and all special units raised in World War II, as well as those of the Gurkha regiments. About the authors Arthur Kipling was the editor for the Journal of the Society for Army Historical Research and former editor of the Bulletin of the Military Historical Society. He was the author of many articles on military history. Hugh King was a collector with over 40 years experience in military head-dress badges and had a knowledge of the subject which is possessed by few in the world. Being in touch with collectors scattered throughout the countries of the old British Empire and the US confirmed him in the role of an authority. He was a member of many military historical societies and founder-member and chairman of Aldershot Militaria Society.
