Description: London, Hamish Hamilton. 1967, First Edition. Hard Cover with dust jacket. 154 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). B&w illustrations, music notation for "The British Grenadiers" and "The Seventh Royal Fusiliers". "After more than 280 years of turbulent history, the Royal Fusiliers look back on a career that has taken them to nearly every country in which Englishmen have fought. The Fusilier has not always been well-treated, and not always well-liked, but his achievements - and his failures - have helped to decide the course of the British nation. Over the years, in their many campaigns, the Fusiliers developed a certain way of doing things, a certain style. They formed a tradition. And this tradition, because it grew out of the fundamentals of British character and British life, still has value for the soldiers of today." Previous owner's small stamp on each of front endpapers, faint erased pencil mark on free front endpaper, very light browning to top of textblock. Dust jacket has light wrinkling - mainly at top of spine and flap-folds, light browning to edges, minor rubbing, old price label on front flap. Very Good+/Very Good.
