Major Lovett's Military Dress and Field Uniforms of the Raj (Paperback)
(This book cannot be returned.)
These 72 impressive watercolour plates by Major Lovett depict the many full dress and field service dress uniforms of the British Indian Army during the years leading up to the Great War. Never again would the pressures of economy allow uniforms of such variety, colour and distinctiveness.
Major A. C. Lovett of the Gloucestershire Regiment was a painter and illustrator best known for his book 'The Armies of India', a wonderful book for the aficionado of the Indian Army at the height of the English Age of Empire - this is also republished by The Naval & Military Press.
This is an invaluable work for anyone interested in the Indian armies and their military uniforms.
