The regiment serving under Colonel Charles Howard in 1743 was already more than 50 years old when it attained its distinctive name from the greenish facings of its uniforms. This history charts the Green Howards' engagements in Britain's major conflicts, including the French wars of the 18th century, Crimea and the two world wars, but also gives equal weight to deployments of more recent decades in Suez, Malaya, Northern Ireland and Afghanistan.
