Does anyone here collect military related books? I am thinking more of orginal period books published and printed during Victoria's reign rather than modern publications.

Sounds interesting! I have a soft spot for the 17th Lancers too! What campaign(s) did Captain Morris take part in?
Gwalior and First Sikh War with the 16th Lancers, then, after transferring to the 17th, the Crimea and the Mutiny. Interesting notes about previously unknown members of the charge. Trooper

Deals with the photographic work of William Baker & John Burke who have left us with a magnificent collection of images (those that have survived) of the NWF and Afghanistan etc.
History of the Guides 1846 - 1922 For me, this book is simply wonderful; a great insight into one of the most famous names in the EIC and Indian army.

I was reading "Crimea" a year or so ago, but got a little bogged down on the background to war, which is very in-depth and lengthy, though splendidly written. I have now had far too long a break from it, and am currently finishing A Lost Legionary in Africa by Hamilton Browne, and you have convinced me to get back to Crimea and finish it this time round. I have high hopes for it - I certainly couldn't knock the first part, but am looking forward to the shooting bit.
