Reflections of a Regiment

Telling the tale of the HAC's vital contribution to the First World War through its unique collections.

The oldest surviving regiment in the British Army, the Honourable Artillery Company boasts a uniquely rich and eventful history. This book marks its distinguished service in the First World War, in which HAC batteries and battalions saw action in almost every theatre of war.

Editor Justine Taylor and Art Director Ian Denning have drawn on the HAC's extraordinary wealth of photographs, written archives and treasured objects to produce a beautiful and frequently moving record from recruitment to demobilisation and beyond, concluding with an examination of the Company's role in the Army Reserve today. Packed with compelling accounts of life in the trenches, behind the lines and on the Home Front, this volume conveys the HAC's contribution to and experience of the war effort with stunning immediacy.
