The Society for Army Historical Research

The Society for Army Historical Research (SAHR) is a learned society, founded in 1921 to foster "interest in the history and traditions of British and Commonwealth armies, and to encourage research in these fields." It is one of the oldest societies of its kind. Past members include notable British Field Marshals Wavell, Auchinleck and Templer.

The Society's interests embrace both army and regimental history, military antiquities and pictures, uniforms, badges and medals, arms and equipment and the history of land warfare in general. The study of campaigns, commanders and the political aspects of war are covered from the sixteenth century to the 1970s.

The main activity of the Society is the publication of a quarterly peer-reviewed scholarly Journal reflecting the members' interests and presenting the results of their own research. The Society also produces a number of special publications.

Welcome to the new-look SAHR website - we hope you like it. It's entirely for your - the members' - benefit, so any suggestions for future layout and content would be much appreciated.

This first iteration includes information on future events - check back soon for details of an exciting slate of talks in autumn 2018, including the Templer Lecture, to be delivered by Templer Medal winner John Hussey in November. In case you missed them, feel free to browse reports of our past events, including the 2018 Annual Members' Meeting or our June lecture on the 1813 Siege of San Sebastian. You can catch up on previous newsletters within the Publications section, where you will also find details of how to submit articles to our Journal or obtain copies of special editions. SAHR's annual Book Lists are also worth a browse. The Competitions section includes all relevant information on past and future Templer Book and Student Essay prizes. If you are thinking of applying for a University Research Grant or one of our new Independent Research Grants, find out more in the Grants section.

Of course, if you are not yet a member, do consider joining to receive copies of our quarterly Journal as well as access to our events. More details are available on our Membership page.

Finally, if you need to get in touch, my details are available on our Contact Us page. Enjoy!
