Osprey Men-at-Arms 10 : The Buffs

The Buffs originated in 1572 from a company of 300 men raised from London trained bands sent to aid the Protestant cause in Holland. Upon their return to England, the Company re-formed as a single regiment, the Holland Regiment, which later became known as 'The Buffs' (from 1935 Royal Buffs). In the years that followed, this highly esteemed regiment served in conflicts ranging from the Peninsular War to World Wars I and II. This book details the history of the Buffs from their inception to their demise as an independent unit in 1967, focusing particularly on their uniforms, including the distinctive dragon badge. An excellent book, full of in-depth detail about this famous regiment. Text by George Blaxland with illustrations by Michael Youens.
