5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent well researched book!, 15 Dec 2006

This review is from: Honours and Awards the South Staffordshire Regiment 1914-1918 (Honours & Awards) (Hardcover)
As a collector of First World War medals to the South Staffordshire Regiment I have found this book an invaluable resource.

It lists virtually all those who served in the regiment who, at some point during the war, won a gallantry medal. These include the Victoria Cross, Distinguished Service Order, Military Cross, Distinguished Conduct Medal and the Military Medal. Also included are those Mentioned in Dispatches as well as those who received foreign bravery awards such as the French and Belgian Croix de Guerre.

A number of recipients of medals within my collection are mentioned in the book but, for me, perhaps the most interesting was to see the name of one of my ancestors who won the Military Medal.

If you have any interest in the South Staffordshire Regiment this book is for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Honours and Awards the South Staffordshire Regiment, 9 May 2010

This review is from: Honours and Awards the South Staffordshire Regiment 1914-1918 (Honours & Awards) (Hardcover)
As an historical researcher, and published author of books relating to the First World War, I purchased this book as an added component in my own research, I found the book to be extremely well laid out and presented in an easily understandable format.
It was also very reassuring to find that almost all of the men that I myself had an interest in were covered within its pages, the book therefore was an extremely worthwhile purchase, and for anyone with an interest in this famous County Regiment and the achievements of its men during the Great War, I can assure them that they will not be disappointed, I know only too well from my own experience how much work has gone into the compilation, and congratulate the author on a very worthwhile and thoroughly researched work, well done.

Image my surprise when investigating my Grandfathers war records and medal history to actually seeing his photo staring at me from within this book. This is a book beyond price for research.

This review is from: Honours and Awards the South Staffordshire Regiment 1914-1918 (Honours & Awards) (Hardcover)
Disappointed that this book only gives details of the higher awards, however, saying that, it is makes very interesting reading as it gives the medal citations. There are also some photographs of the medal receipients.

If your looking for someone who was in the South Staffordshire Regiment who only received the basic medals, ie. Victory Medal, 1914/18 Star & British War Medal, then these aren't listed, as was hoping to find my great grandfather's name in the book.

The book is printed by an independant printing company & has a nice feel to it. The quality is excellent & would put some large well known publishers to shame.

This review is from: Honours and Awards the South Staffordshire Regiment 1914-1918 (Honours & Awards) (Hardcover)
You can tell straight away that this book has taken quite some time to compile. It's packed full of information regarding Honours and Awards of the South Staffordshire Regiment between 1914-1918.
A very well laid out/organised hardback book.
Simply a MUST for anyone interested in the history of WW1.
