|From Scarlet to Khaki : Understanding the Twentieth Century Military Uniforms in your Family Album|
by Jon Mills - Just published.
This book describes and illustrates most of the uniforms worn by the British Army and its associated services in the first sixty years of the twentieth century. Illustrated with 140 original photographs never before published, it shows and describes how uniforms developed from the turn-of-the century scarlet coat to the utilitarian khaki service dress and battledress worn in the two world wars. Coverage is also given to the uniforms worn by the Volunteer Training Corps, The Home Guard and the Womens services of both wars.
Designed for anyone interested in identifying and dating the uniforms worn by their own or others' ancestors, no other book currently in print provides so much detail on identifying features and the dates of introduction of British uniforms.
Whilst aimed primarily at those with no knowledge of military uniforms and including a guide to military terminology, this would also be of interest to younger military collectors and those requiring a quick guide to uniform styles, such as costumiers.
