OFFICERS OF THE GREEN HOWARDS. Alexandra, Princess of Wales’s Own. 1688 to 1920

OFFICERS OF THE GREEN HOWARDS. Alexandra, Princess of Wales’s Own. 1688 to 1920 
Records of service of some 1,800 officers of the Green Howards, beginning with the man who raised the regiment in 1688, Francis Luttrell, and going up to 1920.
This book is a godsend to genealogists and medallists, containing as it does the service records of some 1,800 officers of the Green Howards, beginning with the man who was commissioned by the Prince of Orange to raise and equip a regiment of foot, known in later years as the 19th Foot - Francis Luttrell. The regiment was formed in November 1688 and, in accordance with the custom of the time, it was named after its founder with the title ‘Colonel Francis Luttrell's Regiment of Foot.' Thereafter the title changed with the Colonel's name till 1751 when the system of numbering the regiments was introduced and it became 19th Foot. After a few more changes of title the regiment officially became The Green Howards on 1st January 1921; it is still known by that name, one of only four English and Welsh infantry regiments to have been unaffected by all the amalgamations and re-amalgamations that have killed off other regiments of the line. The amount of information on each officer varies from a few lines to entries with quite an amount of detail about the officer concerned, especially where decorations have been awarded and citations are quoted. Letters from COs and others as well as extracts from local papers or other sources are sometimes quoted in cases where the officer has been killed in action or died on service. The index lists every officer in the book.
