Soldiers of the Queen (SOTQ): Issue 185

The Winter 2022/23 issue of the Victorian Military Society's SOTQ (Soldiers of the Queen) arrived in the post a couple of days ago, and as usual, it contains a very interesting selection of articles on a wide variety of subjects.

The articles included in this issue are:

  • The Courtier and the Queen: Sir John McNeil, V.C. and the Tofrek Controversy by Prof. Ian F W Beckett
  • Three Butlers, a Book and Burma 1824-1926 by David Howell
  • The Diehards at Detling by Tim Rose
  • An African Adventure: The 2/Yorkshire Regiment in Somaliland& by John Sly
  • The Candia Massacre, 1898; William Sidney Churchill and the search for a scapegoat by Mick McTiernan
  • Book Reviews by Dr Roger T Stearn, Dr Linda Parker, and Dr Roger Atwood
  • Officers of the Victorian Military Society

This issue contained the usual mix of interesting articles, and I wish that some of the wargamer magazines that I sometimes read could provide a similar diet of stimulating and original reading.

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