From the rear side cover: Raised in 1685 at the time of the Monmouth Rebellion, the Regiment saw action under King William III and the Duke of Marlborough. It fought in many campaigns on four continents during four centuries. The Lincolns gained the Sphinx as their badge by their participation in the Egyptian Expedition of 1801, which included a magnificent march across the desert. Their silent charge at Sobraon in 1846 brought them imperishable renown. Between 1857 and 1944 men of the Regiment won ten Victoria Crosses. They fought on the Western Front, at Gallipoli and in Egypt in the First World War and in many major campaigns during the Second. Whilst Malaya was under British Rule, The Royal Lincolnshire Regiment participated in both the first (1874-76) and the last (1948-60) military operations there. The County's soldiers continue to serve in the Lincolns' successor, The Royal Anglian Regiment.
