Product Description

About the Author

Ray Westlake has had a long standing fascination with the Territorial Units of the British Army. He has published numeous volumes on British units during the Great War, covering Gallipoli and the Somme. In this, his first title for Osprey, he brings his expertise and research to bear in a close look at the Territorial Forces during this period.

First Sentence
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 (now called the Special Reserve); and a new organisation intended for home defence-the Territorial Force. Read the first page

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!

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.
Fantastic drawings 26 Sept. 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.
