A highly recommended reference book on badges and buttons


Ashok Nath: IZZAT: Historical Records and Iconography of Indian Cavalry Regiments 1750 – 2007 . Published in India 2009. This heavily illustrated 828 page volume has filled a yawning gap in the reference works to which the student or collector in this area can turn. One of the illustrations here shows a typical double page of illustrations, in this case for the 18th King George’s Own Lancers known as the Tiwana Lancers from 1906 and in 1921 amalgamated with Fane’s Horse

I very seldom recommend modern books on this website but since a Dutch friend alerted me to this a year or two ago I have found it so useful that I feel I can do so with confidence.
