The aim of this book is to tell our Regiment's story through its photographs; a story of duty, loyalty and tradition - words seldom used in today's world. It is told here by publishing a wide selection of photographs of the Regiment from the Heights of Sevastopol in 1855 during the Crimean War, to the moment in 2006 when members of the 1st Battalion, The Green Howards, replaced their silver 'Alexandra cipher and Dannebrog' cap badges for the 'lion and rose' of the new Yorkshire Regiment.
