British Army Cap Badges of the Second World War by Peter Doyle and Chris Foster.
This is a companion volume to British Army Cap Badges of the First World War by the same authors, and presents an overview of the main cap badges worn by the British Army during the Second World War, which continued the rich and varied tradition of British Regimental insignia.
The book describes and illustrates, in full colour, the main types of cap badge worn. With many amalgamations, war-raised units and special forces, British military insignia from the period have a surprising range that differs substantially from that worn by the soldiers of the previous generation. As in the first book, this volume contains contemporary photos of the soldiers themselves wearing the badges. An importance reference guide for any badge collector, or history enthusiast. Full colour, large size paperback with 119 pages.
