"Most of them did the only thing they could: their duty as soldiers. Some did more – and this book is about them"'
'Distinguished Service' is the fifth collaboration between Christopher Jary and Nick Speakman. This brand new book details the brave exploits of around a hundred men from the Devonshire and Dorsetshire regiments (including their parent Regiments, the 11th, the 39th and the 54th of Foot) up until 1914.
It details campaigns such as the Peninsula Wars, the Crimean War and the Wars in South Africa, and features a reproduction of a piece by Jeremy Archer 'Saving the Sarah Sands'
It is available from the Museum Shop - you can purchase the book either online (£15 inc p&p) or for £12 if you come into the Museum.The Keep: 13th Aug 2018 12:00:00
