    Default The Great War Medal Collectors Companion Vol I -III

    Publisher: Private (Collectors Guild)
    Year: Vol !; 2011. Vols II & III 2014.
    ISBN: Vol I; 978-0-9527544-4-2

    Vol II 362 +Index (limited edition of 2000)
    Vol III 556 + Index (limited edition of 1200)

    Notes;

    A three volume set but published and sold separately because not every collector will want all three as the content is extensive.

    Vol I deals with the medals themselves both campaign and gallantry. It also covers the Medal Index Cards (MIC) and unofficial medals found in groups.

    Vol II Gives an explanation of the regimental/service number system of the British Army and lists the blocks of numbers used by each regiment or corps. Also covered are the detection of fake maedls and the memorial plaque issued to the NOK of every casualty.

    Vol III Give a chronology of the locations of Divisions and individual battalions throughout the war.

    There is much more in these books including things like the Princess Mary Christmas Gift Tin. Every time I open these volumes I find things I had not previously noticed.

    There are still brand new copies to be found but they are becoming scarce so 2nd hand sellers are likely the best source of these very comprehensive books.

    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing he cares more about than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature with no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

    Default WWI British Battle Insignia

    Title: WWI British Battle Insignia
    Author: Kevin Beckhurst & Military Mode
    Publisher: Military Mode
    Year: 2017.
    ISBN: 978-1-5136-2569-0

    Hardback large format.
    Pages 220 including index.

    Notes;

    This is a re-work of a manuscript compiled by Kevin Beckhurst in the mid 20th century which was found in a militaria shop in the 80s and which was based on the data generated by a survey conducted by the Imperial War Museum. All the diagrams from the original have been re-drawn and show the uniform markings of units fighting in WWI. These unit distinctive markings are the forerunners of the later formations signs, Tactical Recognition Flashes etc.
    Over 50 units did not reply (far more did submit data) when canvassed by IWM so there is room for perhaps a 2nd volume but this book contains a mass of information of great interest to collectors and historians alike not to mention model makers. The sample page below gives the best idea of what is in the book.
