    Default Lincolnshire regiment

    Hi everyone.

    I have been Family History searching for what seems like forever

    At the moment I am researching the Lincolnshire Regiment 1st & 2nd Bat.

    I am trying to obtain a copy of this book, if anyone has any ideas where I could find one, it would be much appreciated.

    amazon.co
    DOT uk/dp/B000X88WMM/?coliid=IP1TQE6F0S5DJ&colid=2H3HI3F0W0WLO&psc=0&re f_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

    I am located in the Midlands and I am happy to help with any research around here.

    Regards

    Hi Keith, and welcome.

    There appear to be numerous copies in public libraries around Lincolnshire - see this entry from the online catalogue (link broken to make it inactive):

    https://
    lincolnshire.spydus.co.uk/cgi-bin/spydus.exe/ENQ/OPAC/BIBENQ?BRN=440876

    It's probably worth checking other counties too, if they would be more convenient for you.

    If you're feeling rich (and it might be cheaper than a trip to Lincolnshire anyway) you can find a few copies on sites like abebooks.co.uk and bookfinder.com

    You're probably already aware of them, but for completeness it may be worth mentioning the regimental association at

    thelincolnshireregiment.org/index.shtml

    and the collection of original documents at Lincolnshire Archives, as listed at LincstothePast:

    lincstothepast.com/Lincolnshire-Regiment/820965.record?pt=S

    (Note to Mods: could this be moved to an appropriate forum, please?)

    Libraries often (or at least, used to) have an inter-library loan system, so it might be worth investigating if your local library could get one on loan for you.

    Hello Pam,

    Thank you for the reply.

    I did ask my local library and they found a copy at the British Library. It is not available as an inter-library loan tho! They didn't find any out in the counties tho.

    Regards

    Hello Arthur,

    Thank you for the swift reply, it is much appreciated.

    I did try an inter-libary loan and the only copy that showed up was/is in the British Library and is only available there.

    The Lincs Regt site appears to be a bit dead at the moment, the last post (no pun intended) is from May 2018.

    I saw the abe books one on line but the postage is a bit steep to say the least

    I will try and get my local library to contact Lincs Libraries.

    I'm sure that I'll get a copy one day.

    Again thank you

    In the past, I found the people at the Lincoln Archives very helpful. You say that you are in the Midlands, so if they have a book but don’t want to lend it, you could pay them a visit. They might have other material as well.

    Thank you for that.

    I did a screen grab of the various libraries that hold a copy and I'll get my local one to contact them.
