“Pray, gentlemen, observe this cap – this is the cap of honour – it dubs a man a gentleman
in the drawing of a tricker…”

George Farquhar,
The Recruiting Officer (1706).

Originally written by David Scott Daniel. The second edition contained additional chapters by General Sir Anthony Farrar-Hockley. This is the third and final edition edited by Major Claud Rebbeck.

This last edition tells of the recent years of this historic Regiment from 1694 up until the amalgamation in 1994. This book is a must for all ‘Glosters’ and readers of military history. In his Foreword to the book HRH The Duke of Gloucester states:
“If you look at the long and distinguished history of this Regiment, at its many Battle Honours and to where these victories have led, it is easy to see how significant has been the contribution of the people of Gloucestershire to the history of the world”.
