Online Bibliographies

The Army Museums Ogilby Trust  website incorporates a bibliography of British Army regiments maintained under the scholarly stewardship of the antiquarian bookseller Victor Sutcliffe. The listings are sensibly organised under four headings for each regiment: Main Histories, Wider Histories, Biographies/Autobiographies and Regimental Journals. The intention is to replace and enlarge White’s bibliography (qv) which omitted many histories, especially those printed in small numbers for First and Second World War temporary formations and units, with the not inconsiderable addition of biographies and memoirs. The latter, gathered under regimental headings for the first time, will be of inestimable value to family historians and researchers who want to gain an understanding of the experience of the individuals of a regiment in a given campaign or era. Such memoirs, often based on letters and diaries kept at the time, can round off regimental history accounts nicely.

This relatively new project is still in the course of compilation, but given the flexibility of the medium to continuously update and improve entries the bibliography has the potential to be a really fine resource, an essential port of call in any literature search for British Army material. It deserves to be promoted

Bamji Collection
“During my time as Curator of the Gillies Archives at Queen Mary’s Hospital, Sidcup I collected, on behalf of the hospital, a large library of books relating to medicine and surgery of the Great War, and also recorded any other relevant texts even if I was unable to acquire them. In my website about the archives I constructed an online bibliography, which I continue to maintain. It includes textbooks, official and unit histories, medical, nursing and other personal accounts, and some modern historical books of relevance.

Following the closure of the hospital’s Postgraduate Centre the collection was donated to the Brotherton Library, University of Leeds "
