A history of the Manchester Regiment

The Manchester Regiment: The 63rd & 96th Regiments of Foot Summary

The Manchester Regiment: The 63rd & 96th Regiments of Foot: Britain in Old Photographs by Robert Bonner

This fascinating illustrated regimental history contains photographs between the 1860s and the last days of the Manchester Regiment in 1958, when it ceased to exist as a distinct unit. During this time the Regiment served in most parts of the Empire including areas as diverse as India, South Africa, Egypt, Palestine, Singapore, Malaya and, later, Germany. The two regular battalions of the Manchester Regiment were formed by the amalgamation of the 63rd (West Suffolk) and 96th Regiments of Foot during the Cardwell-Childers reforms of the British Armed Forces. Militia and volunteers battalions from Lancashire were also incorporated as reserve battalions. Whilst serving abroad, many of the soldiers' families went with them, and this book records the legacy and offers a detailed insight both military and family life at this time. With 200 photographs from the Regiment's own archive at the Museum of the Manchester Regiment, many never before published, this volume provides an interesting pictorial insight into the history of the Regiment.
