Soldiers of the Queen (SOTQ): Issue 157

This morning’s post included the latest copy of SOTQ (Soldiers of the Queen, the quarterly journal of the Victorian Military Society).

The articles included in this issue are:

  • The Death of Field Marshal Earl Roberts (14 November, 1914) by Rodney Atwood
  • Sherlock Holmes and the Victorian Army by Dan Allen
  • Food Coupons during the Siege of Mafeking, 14 October 1899 to 17 May 1900 by J F Cowlin
  • Lord Kitchener, St Paul and Corinthians 13 by Dahlia Harrison
  • ’An Excellent Bandmaster’: BM William Clark, 1st Bn. The East Surrey Regt by Mike Boxall
  • Book Reviews
  • About the VMS

Yet another issue that is full of interesting and somewhat eclectic articles. I have only read the Sherlock Holmes one so far … and very enjoyable it was!
