The aim of this book is to tell our Regiment's story through its photographs; a story of duty, loyalty and tradition - words seldom used in today's world. It is told here by publishing a wide selection of photographs of the Regiment from the Heights of Sevastopol in 1855 during the Crimean War, to the moment in 2006 when members of the 1st Battalion, The Green Howards, replaced their silver 'Alexandra cipher and Dannebrog' cap badges for the 'lion and rose' of the new Yorkshire Regiment.
All the photographs have been taken from the 7,000 strong archive in The Green Howards Regimental Museum. They illustrate senior officers to private soldiers in the regulars, militia, volunteers and territorials ranging from Yorkshire to locations around the world where the Regiment has served in peace and war.
