Product Description

Product Description

In his Army Reforms of 1906/07 the Secretary of State for War, Richard Burdon Haldane, provided for an expeditionary force - the Regular Army supplemented by the old Militia - and a new organisation intended for home defence, the Territorial Force. This new 'Citizen's Army' was formed by the transfer of the Honourable Artillery Company, Imperial Yeomanry and Volunteer Force, all with many years of service and tradition. At the outbreak of war, the Territorial Force was organised as per the Regular Army, with infantry battalions, artillery, engineers, supply and medical formations. This title takes a highly detailed and illustrated look at the badges and uniforms and the changing organisation of the British Territorial units during the Great War. It also covers the combat experiences of the men who soon found themselves in service overseas, in the thick of the fighting.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the finest volumes in this series. 15 Mar 2002
Format:Paperback
This is perhaps one of the best small books on the Territorial Force's order of battle and its war service.
It may be small, but it points you in the right direction if one wishes to do more research on this subject.
The illustrations and photoes are excellent, as is always true for Osprey Publications.
I was even able to find a photo of an officer who served in the same battalion as my Great-Grandfather, the 7th Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.
Thoughouly recommended for all First World War buffs!

4.0 out of 5 stars A COMPLICATED SUBJECT 1 May 2014
By Mark Waywood - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
OSPREY'S ENTRY REGARDING THE BRITISH TERRITORIAL UNITS ROLE IN WORLD WAR 1 IS A GREAT PIECE OF RESEARCH BY THE AUTHOR RAY WESTLAKE. NAMING EVERY UNIT IN THE TERRITORIAL FORCE IN ALL BRANCHES OF THE SERVICE AND THEIR PLACE OF ORIGIN, HE DOES A RATHER NEAT JOB OF COVERING A FAIRLY COMPLEX SUBJECT. ORIGINALLY RAISED TO DEFEND THE HOMELAND, THESE TERRITORIAL UNITS SERVED ON THE WESTERN FRONT, THE SALONIKA FRONT, GALLIPOLI, AND IN EGYPT-PALESTINE. THE AUTHOR GIVES A SUMMATION OF EACH DIVISIONS ROLE IN WORLD WAR I. A MAJOR CONTRIBUTION BEING THEY REINFORCED A DEVASTATED PROFESSIONAL BRITISH ARMY IN THE WAKE OF TREMENDOUS LOSSES IN 1914-1915, BEFORE THE ARRIVAL OF "KITCHENER'S ARMY." ON THE TOPIC OF BADGES AND INSIGNIA, HE MAKES AS MUCH SENSE OUT OF THIS COMPLICATED TOPIC, AS ANY AUTHOR WITH ONLY A LIMITED SPACE COULD. ONE WONDERS IF A VOLUME 2 MIGHT BE IN ORDER SOME TIME IN THE FUTURE.

Covers another subject little known about. The formation and what happened each division and seperate units is dicussed in detail. The majority being used to fill up regular divisions. Uniforms and location of units is covered also. Pictures ans color plates are a plus
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic drawings 26 Sep 2012
By danny boy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Ray Westlake is a recognised authority on British regimental, yeomanry and territorial units. Many of these units had very distinctive and colourful insignia which helped in unit recoginition in an overall drab uniformity during the Great War. The breakdown and overall survey of these markings is largely beautifully complemented by some truly inspired drawings by Mike Chappell.
