Authored by two of Canada's leading collector/researchers; Jim Boulton authored "Headdress of the Mounted Police" and Clive authored "Fuss and Fashion".

Most variants are show, in both the officer and OR patterns as well as thumb-nail histories of their design and approval by Corps or regiment. Rounding out this valuable reference is a section on glengarries. 282 pages, full colour throughout, over 500 illustrations.
