Beschreibung:

The Kings Royal Rifle Corps, or the 2nd Battalion the Royal Green Jackets as they are now known, had a long and proud fighting tradition that they would exchange with no other regiment in the British Army. Originally raised from American colonists in 1756, their skill in fighting the French and their native American allies in the woods in the north of the nascent America was legendary; the regiment was honoured for its distinguished service with the motto "e;Swift and Bold"e; by no less a figure as General Wolfe in the Quebec campaign. During the Napoleonic Wars, companies of the 5th Battalion were attached to the divisions of Wellington's army to provide them with tough, resilient experienced skirmishers. After many significant deployments to overseas theatres during the 1800's, the regiment was hugely expanded for service in the First World War during which the men of the KRRC added much lustre to their reputation and no fewer than seven V.C.s.Lt.-General Sir Edward Hutton was a distinguished officer of the British army, aide-de-camp to Queen Victoria and pioneered the use of mounted infantry in the British Army. He was also the first commander of the Australian Army. He wrote this short history of his old regiment in retirement during the early stages of the First World War.Author - Lt.-General Sir Edward Thomas Henry Hutton 1848-1923Text taken, whole and complete, from the edition published in 1917, Winchester, by Warren and SonOriginal Page Count - 84 pages.Illustrations - 4 maps and plans.
