Soldiers of the Queen (SOTQ): Issue 181

The Victorian Military Society recently sent me the latest issue of SOTQ (Soldiers of the Queen).

The articles included in this issue are:

  • Brothers in Arms and Brother-in-Law: Archibald Alison, James Dormer and the Politics of Command by Prof Ian F W Beckett
  • 'What were they running from?': Persuading young men to enlist in the Army in the late nineteenth century by John Sly
  • The Diehard Company on Home Service (Part Two) by Graham Gillmore
  • Protecting the Army's Human Resource: Lord Kitchener and Medical Arrangements by Dr Anne Samson
  • Scutari: Is it just a good story by Colin Dean
  • Book Reviews by Roger T Stearn, and Keith Surridge
  • Officers of the Victorian Military Society

This was another issue that gave me several hours of enjoyable reading and diverse reading ... and proved yet again that the cost of membership of the Victorian Military Society (UK: £25.00 and Overseas: £30.00) is well worth it.
