The Lincolns - The Tenth Foot 1685-1960 in Pictures, by John Benson
Book published by Richard Kay in 2008, 272 pages. Paperback (N4745)
This book is a fascinating pictorial history of the 10th Foot - The Lincolns, and is packed full with black and white photographs showing the regiment over the years, decades and centuries. Please note that the quality of the photographs is photocopy quality, but this in no way detracts from the fascinating contents!
From the rear side cover: This book follows almost 300 years of the history of The Lincolnshire Regiment (the Tenth Foot), raised by the parliament of King James II, along with ten other regiments of infantry to put down the rebellion of the Duke of Monmouth (the illegitimate son of Charles I) in 1685.
Over the years thousands of young men from Lincolnshire served - and many died - with the regiment in all corners of the world, until it finally lost its identity when it merged with the Northampton Regiment in 1960.
Condition of the book is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, with only very light nibbling and wear along the edges and corners, the spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is a small price sticker on the rear side cover.
