Hi all

Just acquired Lt. Vor Trower's copy of "Historical Records of 24th". He was with Chelmsford on 22 January, went on to command the 2nd battalion SWB and served in the Boer War and WW1. Commemorated at Brecon Cathedral and I think his medals are at the Museum. Has anyone come across a picture of him?

Steve,

There a very good image of him taken 1904 in The South Wales Borderers (24th Regiment of Foot) 1881-1969 compiled by Martin Everett, published in 1999.

Regards,

JY

Thank John. These ebook things are great. But nothing like having the real book. 

Rusteze. Do you mind if I ask how much you paid for the book?

Bought at a local book fair from a general dealer who didn't really understand what it was, so cost very little.
But you can spend a lot of time searching for these little gems - good fun though.

Ummm! Looks like Mr Everett got things wrong with the title of his book doesn't it?

The swb were NEVER the 24th regiment of foot. Why? Because the regimental numbers were officially ended in July 1881 (the birth of the swb). The last British infantry regiment to officially have the number 24 in their title were the 24th (2nd Warwickshire) regiment, a title they held for the best part of 100 years.

BANG!!!! Martin your back in the game. Even Martin Everett makes mistakes. Excellent observation! agree

Although, the original 24th could of course be an Irish regiment?
