Personal Distinctions - 350 Years Of Royal Marines Uniforms & Insignia
By John Rawlinson - This is a long overdue comprehensive catalogue of uniforms and insignia worn by Marines and Royal Marines since 1664 to the present day. Over 1000 high quality photographs and clear descriptions make this a volume that will sought after by aficionados and collectors of Marine memorabilia around the world. The book ranges from uniforms worn by the earliest Marine regiments through the Napoleonic era and the period of the RMLA and RMA via the sea service and commando uniforms worn in World War 2 to those of today. They include badges of rank and specialisation and the large and, in many cases quaint, variety of headdresses worn through the ages.
