The Prince Consort's Library in Aldershot was open to the public today as part of Heritage Open Days. Pretty much untouched since it opened in 1866, it would have been used by many of the officers who served in the AZW. This is one of the libraries copies of Historical Records of 24th Regiment which I would very much like in my collection.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

There is another interesting connection to the AZW. The library was paid for and maintained out of the private funds of the Prince Consort. When he died Queen Victoria continued to pay its upkeep until her death in 1901. The management committee then wrote to ask Edward VII to continue the tradition, but the old reprobate refused! The War Office was approached to see if they would fill the gap - their response was "what library?". Then comes the AZW connection, Evelyn Wood who was by then officer commanding Aldershot District had been an avid user of the library in his junior days. He weighed in managing to extract £60 per year out of the War Office - just enough for the library to survive.
