A New “Westlake” classic! This book, the first in a series of British Army ‘Guides’, deals with the numbered regiments that existed between 1751, when the British infantry was ordered to discard their colonels’ names as titles and be known in future by number only (1st Regiment of Foot, 2nd Regiment of Foot etc), and 1881 when numerical designations were replaced by the now familiar territorial names such as the Hampshire Regiment or Middlesex Regiment.
