Detailed Description

This list sets out to demonstrate the military service, both Regular and in the Auxiliary Forces, of more than 350 officers of the Hertfordshire Yeomanry, so that it can be considered alongside their civilian careers and achievements. As such, it is of interest to local and family historians, who will find their subjects’ military careers very fully researched.

Colonel J.D. Sainsbury was commissioned in the Royal Artillery during National Service, which he spent with a field regiment in Germany. After retiring from a career at the Bank of England, he then spent twenty years as a historical consultant and archivist in the Honours and Awards Branch of the Military Secretary’s Department of the MoD. As a Territorial Army officer he served in local field artillery units and in a variety of staff jobs, until retiring in 2000. He was appointed OBE (Military Division) in the 1997 New Year Honours. He was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London in 1991 for his work preserving and recording the history of military units raised in Hertfordshire.
