This is a
rare work which includes a general account of the origin
and history of the military units raised in the dates
cited, primarily to serve throughout the empire, from
just after the Crimean War into Africa and the Boer War.
It includes Light Horse, Mounted Rifles, Artillery,
Engineers, and Territorial Regiments such as the
Roxburgh and Selkirk, the Berwickshire Volunteers, the
Dumfries Volunteer Battalion, the Perthshire,
Fifeshire, and Renfrewshire, as well as Rifle Corps, and
the Medical Units. The uniqueness of the work, however,
is in the color plates which illustrate the uniforms,
with as near absolute accuracy as possible. There are
some 47 beautiful full-color plates, showing both kilted
and non-kilted units.
