HISTORICAL RECORD OF THE TWENTY-SIXTH OR CAMERONIAN REGIMENT

HISTORICAL RECORD OF THE TWENTY-SIXTH OR CAMERONIAN REGIMENT  


OUR PRICE: £22.00  

Illustrated regimental history of Scotland's only rifle regiment, the 26th (Cameronian) Regiment from 1689-1867, this covers the units role in all four of Marlborough's great victories; the American War of Independence; the retreat to Corunna and subsequent service in India and China. This reprint contains the fine Colour Uniform Plates By R Simkin, that were included in only a very few copies of the original book.
First published in 1867, at the height of the Victorian Age of Empire, this regimental history records the role of the 26th (Cameronian) Regiment, Scotland's only rifle regiment, and one of the famously fierce Lowland regiments which contributed so much to the British Army's success in war. Founded in 1689 just after the ‘Glorious Revolution' with the Earl of Angus as its first Colonel, the Regiment took part in William III's war with France, including the battle of Steinkirk and the capture of Namur. In the War of Spanish Succession it fought under the Duke of Marlborough at all four of his great victories of Blenheim, Ramillies, Oudenarde and Malplaquet, as well as many sieges. Back in Britain it was used to suppress the first major Jacobite rising in 1715 at the battle of Preston; defended Gibraltar in 1727, and fought in the American War of Independence. In the Napoleonic Wars it served in Egypt, took part in Sir John Moore's retreat to Corunna; and later in the 19th century served in India and China.
