Ray Westlake is a recognized authority on British Army lineage and gives dates of formation, amalgamation, disbandment and changes in designation for all regiments.

Collecting Metal Shoulder Titles is recognized by collectors and military historians alike as the definitive reference work.

Today, some sixteen years after it first appeared, the book remains the only reliable guide to an increasingly popular form of collecting.

This edition, with two supplements, brings it abreast of the last round of mergers and amalgamations.
