Tigers on the Western Front
The 5th Leicestershire Regiment rallied to the colours almost to a man as so many Territorial units did at the outbreak of the First World War. It served on the Western Front as part of the 46th (North Midland) Division which consisted of the Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Staffordshire brigades. The Leicestershire's were in the 138th Brigade commanded initially by General A. Taylor and subsequently by General R. Clifford. In the pages of this book Actions are described on the Salient, on Vimy Ridge, at Gommecort, Monchy, Lens, Hill 65, St. Elie, Pontruet, Fresnoy, Riquerval Woods and many other engagements where the men with the tiger cap badge distinguished themselves. This history of the regiment was written by a serving officer who has produced a thorough and engaging account of the regiment's time during the Great War which will be of interest both to students of the British infantry at war and those who wish to trace their ancestors to those momentous days in world history. The book includes honour and roster rolls of especial interest to genealogists. Available in softcover and hardcover with dustjacket for collectors.
