Essex Territorial Army Association History Sub-Committee

After World War One the History Sub-Committee decided to publish some books to mark the work of the Essex Units in the war.

In 1923 the members of this committee were drawn from the many Essex Units that participated in the war.

The powerful nature of the men on the committee indicate the strong feeling amongst the soldiers of Essex that the valiant deeds of Essex Regiment and other Essex Units in the Great War and other conflicts should be recorded.
