From the rear side cover: This illustrated history describes the activities of the regular army element of the Manchester Regiment during the final thirteen years of its two hundred years' service. The Cold War was at its height during these last years and the regiment served both in Germany in an internal security role and in Malaya on active service. Many of the men mentioned in this volume were carrying out their compulsory National Service, and the important role which they and their regular army comrades played is fully described and illustrated. Three maps and 125 photographs, plus an extensive index, provide a fascinating insight into the military, social and family life of a proud infantry regiment. Chapters include:

Hamburg
Goslar
Dunham Park
Wuppertal
Berlin 1950-1951
Chester
