Does anyone have any photos or pictures of Royal Horse Artillery for the time 1894 - 1906? The Uniform they went to war in! Please. I'm doing a family history book/booklet on my Gt-Uncle who served in 'J ' Battery RHA, I would be most grateful for any help any one who may help me please!

Does anyone have a copy of the Queen's Army Regs for around 18900's please? with contents?

Does anyone know where "25 Coy Royal Field Artillery" where in 1895/96 Please?

Plus any Hat Badges for the above for 1894-1906?

Thank You

Here is an illustration of an RHA captain c1897. There are plenty of books on the RHA and Dress Regulations are readily available from Naval & Military Press and D, P & G Publishing.

I have all of the DRs and I suspect the ones you require are 1891, 1894, 1900, 1904 and maybe 1911. The latter two are in CD format or downloadable from www.youroldbooksandmaps.co.uk. You may also need some Army Lists for the period and they are also available from youroldbooksandmaps as well as others.

Kipling & King are generally regarded as the bible for headgear badges and their book is also readily available.

Another few are -

Uniforms of the Royal Artillery by P.H. Smitherman

The History of the Dress of the Royal Regiment of Artillery by Captain R.J. MacDonald

Uniforms of the British Army: The Cavalry Regiments by W.Y. Carman


PS. I find www.bookfinder.com very useful for locating books worldwide
