National Service for many brought some discipline to their lives, for others, they got to see the world. Some fought in action in far flung parts of the Empire. This book compiles the various Army training manuals issued throughout National Service.


Conscription, a feature of the British Army in wartime, did not cease with the end of the Second World War. For almost another two decades, men were conscripted for National Service and two years in the armed forces. For many it brought some discipline to their lives, for others, they got to see the world. Some fought in action in Cyprus, Malaya, Kenya, Korea and in many other far flung parts of the dwindling Empire. During the Cold War, it also ensured Britain could call on a professionally-trained group of men in times of war. It was all to end by the early 1960s, but hundreds of thousands of men were trained using the information enclosed within the pages of the "National Serviceman's Manual", a compilation of the various Army training manuals issued throughout National Service.
