TARGETS AND TRAMWAYS The National Rifle Association, Its Tramways and the London and South Western Railways


The author has mined the extensive archives of the NRA to provide not simply a history of the Association but a detailed account of its relationships with the LSWR, the military authorities, suppliers, contractors and other parties.  Thanks to the survival of its letter books, he is able to tell much of the story in the words of those involved, using extensive verbatim transcripts.  Although sometimes the other side of the correspondence has not survived, the NRA’s letters fortuitously began with a summary of the preceding, now missing, document.  The author has achieved a level of detail and immediacy rarely achieved in archive-based research. Beautifully produced, heavily illustrated in black and white and colour, with maps, an index and short bibliography.
