  1. Each unit is covered in a separate, complete and free-standing entry. There is therefore some repetition, particularly after the many amalgamations since the end of the WW2.
  2. The Territorial Force entries start in 1908, when the Territorial Force was formed, and The London Regiment was set up. Part 1 gives much information about antecedent units of the Yeomanry and Volunteers before 1908. The bibliography, particularly the books, articles and pamphlets by W Richards, JBM Frederick, EA James and Ray Westlake are recommended reading for earlier titles.
  3. The Yeomanry precedence in 1914 is shown after the title as [ ]. The Yeomanry precedence in 1920 is shown after the title as ( ).
  4. The unit title above each entry is the 1908 Title.
  5. The insignia at the head of each entry is that worn by the unit in 1908.
  6. The Middlesex Regiment became inextricably linked with London on the creation of the local Government administrative area, the County of London, in 1888. On the introduction of the Territorial and Reserve Forces Bill in 1908, The London Regiment gained extensively from the County of Middlesex.
  7. In the July 1916 re-linking of the Battalions of The London Regiment with a parent regular Regiment, The Middlesex Regiment took on two Battalions (7th and 13th) to join their existing linkage with the 19th .
  8. Later, with the disappearance of the County of Middlesex as an administrative body of local government (remaining today very much in name only) the City and Greater London Territorial Associations became responsible for the remaining Territorial Army soldiers in Middlesex.
  9. The order of precedence is the Maritime Reserve consisting of the Royal Naval Reserve and Royal Marines Reserve, followed by the Army Reserve, led by the Honourable Artillery Company, then the Yeomanry Regiments, the Royal Regiment of Artillery, the Corps of Royal Engineers and the Infantry.
  10. Following the Army units are Auxiliary Air Force Squadrons all raised in what is now the Greater London area. They in turn are followed by the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (PRVC).
