From Scarlet to Khaki is designed to allow people to identity British military uniforms worn by their ancestors in family photographs dating between 1902 and 1950.
The book provides an overview of British Army uniforms worn by soldiers, airmen and sailors in the first five decades of the 20th Century. Illustrated with 140 photographs of uniforms the book describes the development of uniforms from the scarlet coat to the utilitarian khaki service dress and battledress worn during the First and Second World Wars.
Also included are the uniforms worn by the Volunteer Training Corps, The Home Guard and the women's services of both wars
Whilst aimed primarily at those with no knowledge of military uniforms and including a guide to military terminology, this would also be of interest to younger military collectors and those requiring a quick guide to uniform styles, such as costumiers.
