The Book

This is the story of all those from Gloucestershire who have served their country,
including the history of the Glosters and their predecessor regiments.
The Soldiers of Gloucester Museum in the city's historic docks contains a
unique collection of objects spanning the centuries. In this book, the
museum's director has selected a hundred key objects from the collection,
and describes their place in the military history of the county and country.
From uniforms worn in battle against Napoleon to beautiful paintings of the
Indian Raj and moving artefacts from the two World Wars, and the Glosters'
famous role in Korea, the book tells the fascinating stories behind the
objects, to shed a unique light on the past in this richly illustrated book.
This is a perfect introduction to the proud and important history of
Gloucestershire's soldiers.
