For those with an interest in the lineage of the British Army and who may wonder what happened to those famous regiments whose names have disappeared, this book is without peer from the point of view of easy traceability. Goff Lumley has combined cap badge illustrations with geneological information in a form which enables the reader to trace back current regimental titles to their antecedents with the greatest of ease. There is no other one-volume work like it and I doubt there ever will be. Anthony Baker's multi-volume genealogical tables of the British Army contain greater detail but are not in the same at-a-glance format - they are also much more expensive! I cannot recommend Goff Lumley's book too highly.
