Leo Cooper, London,1970, first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1./2, VG/VG CONDITION ( light dj edge wear ), 175 pages, illus, maps, appendices, index.--------------------------------------------------Between the wars British infantry regiments led a well-ordered life with one battalion abroad and one at home. Occasionally to placate the taxpayer (who had little enough to worry about at that time) they were called upon to be shot at by the Pathans on the North West Frontier of India, or to quell a riot in some backwater of a fading Empire. In the main, however, their movements were completely predictable.Since the end of the Second World War, the British Army has given the taxpayer considerably better value for money, and no regiment more so than the Glosters. In 1945 the 1st Battalion Ñ the old 28th Ñ were in India and the 2nd Ñ the old 61st Ñ in Germany. In the next twenty-five years they embarked on a succession of moves round the world which other regiments may have equalled but surely not surpassed.Berlin, Jamaica, British Honduras Ñ these were the first three `peacetime' stations before the 28th and 61st amalgamated and the Glosters became a one battalion regiment. ----------------------------------------------------------------Then it was Korea and the Imjin River battle in which the battalion practically ceased to exist, but succeeded in capturing the imagination of the western world. Here it was that Lieutenant-Colonel Digby Grist took command after the battle of barely a hundred men and sent his historic signal, `We are operational again', a statement which the Glosters have lived up to fully ever since.There followed two years of home service, but in 1955 the Battalion was on the move again, this time to Kenya. By the end of 1957 they had been involved in many successful operations against the Mau Mau, quelled riots in Bahrein and made a major contribution to the restoration of peace in Cyprus.A brief tour of duty in Germany was followed by an even briefer spell at home and then Cyprus once more in 1962. It was to be four years before the Battalion saw England again, and during this time they managed to fit in Swaziland, Mauritius and Aden. N° de ref. de la librería
