Over the 140 years of British control over Aden, and especially during the times this area was the British Protectorate of Aden, several local military services were established. As a consequence, all had a strong British flavor, as demonstrated by their doctrine, organization, structure, ranks, uniforms, drill, equipment and other arrangements.
Drawing upon interviews with veterans of the services involved, archival and museum research in Great Britain and the Gulf states, and support from several veteran’s associations, Military and Police Forces of the Gulf States, Volume 3, provides an organizational history of each service in pre-independence Aden, along with exclusive photographs, color profiles and diagrams detailing the uniforms, badges, insignia and equipment of the various forces over the time period until Aden achieved independence in 1967.
