History of the Welsh Militia & Volunteer Corps, 1757–1908:
Glamorgan (Part 2): Volunteers & Local Militia, 1796–1816; Yeomanry Cavalry, 1808–31
The History of the Welsh Militia & Volunteer Corps, 1757–1908 will, for the first time, make generally available a comprehensive record of the services of the many units which were formed in the Principality up to the implementation of the Territorial and Reserve Forces Act of 1907.
Research for this series has spanned a period of 40 years and it is hoped that every county of Wales will eventually be covered.
