Half-pay list for the year 1714 ~~ republication
Humbly, I wish to announce the forthcoming republication of A regimental list of the half-pay officers for the year 1714. This list, the original, was subject of an earlier post on this blog. This current republication is an annotated and edited version of the original version of 1714. It will be a limited reprint of 50 copies only. The publication is expected to be printed in the second half of May. Pre-orders are already welcomed and accepted.
As one of its original goals, this blog aims at discussing all aspects related to the lineages of the regiments and corps of the British Army, as is reflected in its title. Since early November 2009 however, the more specific aim is to focus on the earlier period of the British Army, from the Restoration until death of Queen Anne in 1714 being the last Stuart monarch. In particular it is the intention to discuss some lesser known aspects of the British Army.
