Soldiers of the Queen (SOTQ): Issue 183

The Spring 2022 issue of the Victorian Military Society's SOTQ (Soldiers of the Queen) arrived in the post yesterday, and as I have come to expect, it contains a very interesting selection of articles on a wide variety of subjects.

The articles included in this issue are:

  • One Book and Many Films: 'The Four Feathers' by Dr Rodney Atwood
  • 'Comrades ... stick together!' The Life Guards' mutiny of 1892 by Dr Andrew Windrow
  • 'Soldiers of the Queen' in the Great War by John Sly
  • Fatal accidents and misadventures that occurred during the War with Russia, 1854-1856 by r Mike Hinton
  • Obituary: Captain Howard S. Brown
  • Book Reviews by Dr Roger T Stearn
  • Officers of the Victorian Military Society

As 'The Four Feathers' is one of my favourite films (I own three versions on DVD!), the article by Dr Roger Atwood was by far and away my favourite one in this issue, but the article about the Life Guards' mutiny was a topic that I had never heard or read about before, and it certain ly piqued my interest.

The cost of membership of the Victorian Military Society (UK: £25.00 and Overseas: £30.00) is well worth it.
