ROYAL INNISKILLING FUSILIERS
Being the History of the Regiment from December 1688 to July 1914  


OUR PRICE: £32.00  Summer Sale Price: £25.60

A history of one of the proudest Irish regiments to have served in the British Army to the outbreak of the Great War. Covers the 18th century wars with France, the Peninsular War and Waterloo campaign; the Indian Mutiny and the Boer War. Fine colour and b/w plates and 21 maps.
The Inniskillings are one of the proudest names in the history of Irish regiments in the British Army. Originating from a local defence force raised in the town of its name in the time of King William III, the Inniskillings fought in Ireland and Flanders under that monarch. They were employed as marines under the ill-fated Admiral Byng in the Mediterranean; and in the War of Jenkins' Ear. Used to help quell Bonnie Prince Charlie's 1745 rebellion, the regiment played its part in winning Canada from the French in the Seven Years' War, and served in the American War of Independence. Expanded to two, then three battalions the Inniskillings covered themselves with glory in the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, - fightiung the French in Egypt, and the Peninsular War, in which their battle honours include Badajoz, Salamanca, Vittoria, NIvelle, Orthez and Toulouse. The first Battalion of the Regiment won laurels at Waterloo and was frequently deployed in India during the 19th century. (This history contains a chapter on the 108th [Madras Infantry] Regiment, and its forebear, the 3rd [Madras Infantry] Regiment which was raised to combat the Indian Mutiny. It was re-designated at the 2nd battalion of the Inniskillings in 1881). The Inniskillings subsequently saw service in the Boer War. This fine history takes the Regiment's story up to the outbreak of the Great War. It includes 30 b/w photos; 16 colour prints, 21 maps and a list of the Regiment's COs.
