The Scots Guards 1919-1955 compiled by Davi Erskine - 1956  FIRST EDITION published by William Clowes and Sons, Ltd., London.

This is a monumental regimental history with the bulk of it, nearly 466 pages, devoted to WWII and the Occupation. As in 1914, the regiment went to war in 1939 with two battalions which at one stage had increased to four of which only the 4th did not see active service as a battalion; two of its companies, however, did fight in Italy with 1st and 2nd Battalions, and in NW Europe with Irish and Welsh Guards battalions. The 3rd Battalion converted to armour and fought in NW Europe as a Guards tank battalion. A 5th Battalion had a brief existence as a Ski battalion, recruited from experienced volunteers, civilian and military, called for in telegrams despatched by the War Office all over the world. It was nicknamed 'The Snowballers'. The life of this most odd unit spanned three months - January to March 1940 when it was disbanded. The history is arranged in seven parts. Part I covers the period between the wars, which includes service in Egypt, Palestine, Hong Kong and Shanghai, and then follow: Scandinavia 1940 (1st Bn); At Home 39-"45 (1st Bn, Trg Bn, RHQ and Holding Bn); N Africa "39-"43 (1st and 2nd Bns); Italy "43-"47 (1st and 2nd Bns); NW Europe "44-"46 (2nd and 3rd Bns); and finally Post War "45-"55 which includes Malaya (2nd Bn). In each section the actions of each battalion involved are described. 

Comprehensive appendices give Roll of Honour and Casualty Statistics, Honours and Awards, List of COs, Adjutants, QMs and RSMs.  44 black and white photographic plates 

and all 45 maps called for are present, including all fold-outs. 

The book without a dust jacket has faded boards and spine with embossed silver and gilt Scots Guards crest to front; corners are bumped and there is wear at the head and tail and to the front spine edge.The contents themselves are very clean and tight. 

Dimensions 25.7cm x 16.7cm Weight VERY HEAVY 1840g unpackaged. Total pages xx + 624
