Britain's Volunteers, Volume 6     Volunteers of the 1890s, Part IV

This CD contains over 100 illustrations of uniforms worn by volunteers in the Yeomanry, Infantry, Artillery, Engineers, Medical Staff & Cadets, in Great Britain during the 1890s. Each battalion or unit has, in most cases, two figures to illustrate the uniforms worn. In a very few instances I have only been able to find information for only one. Included in the plates are any badges I could find and a copy of the 1898 & 1900 Army List. All plates are full page illustrations, as shown immediately below.

A complete list of illustrations is shown at the bottom of the page.     Cost $24.00

Example Page

Sergeant & Piper, Blairlodge School Cadet Corps, 1895

The Corps wore the uniform of the Black Watch with white metal additions, the same as its affiliated battalion. The senior NCO at left wears parade uniform of Glengarry, doublet and kilt. On the right sleeve are the three chevrons of his rank and his equipment includes a cross belt with white metal fittings, also a symbol of rank. He carries a Martini Henry carbine.

The piper at right is unusual in that he wears the standard uniform of the Corps with only his belts and the full plaid to differentiate him from the other boys, and he also carried a full set of pipes.
