John Bodsworth.
Published Military Library Research Service 2006.

Regiments:
3rd Carabiniers (POWDG) ... 4/7th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards...
3rd Kings Hussars... 4th Queens Hussars ... 7th Queens Hussars...

16/5th Queens Royal Lancers...17/21st Lancers...Light Dragoons...Queens Bays (2nd DG)...
Queens Dragoon Guards...Queens Own Hussars...Queens Royal Hussars...Queens Royal Irish Hussars...
Queens Royal Lancers...Royal Armoured Corps...Royal Dragoon Guards...1st Royal Dragoons... Royal Hussars...
Royal Scots Dragoon Guards...Royal Scots Greys (2nd Dragoons)...Royal Tank Regiment...

A wealth of information, good colour photographs illustrating all types of the corps uniform from No.1 dress through to No.14 including full dress.
Badges and insignia are clearly illustrated although there are a few errors with numbering in the text reference.
With modern books it’s becoming the norm for printing errors and mistakes in general, the errors, those that I’ve noticed, are mainly just ‘3b’ instead of ‘3a’ rather than the wrong details.
Proof readers, or good ones, seem to have become an endangered species!

In my opinion it’s still a first class publication, mistakes and all.
