The Society for Army Historical Research (SAHR) aims to identify, from appropriately submitted pieces of work, the best essay written on the History of the British Army. This includes any aspect of the Army and its activities, including its Reserve or Auxiliary formations or the civil offices and institutions which supported them. Candidates may also deal with the same material in respect of the armies of the countries of the British Empire/ Commonwealth including forces maintained by non-Crown bodies within the Empire, such as the East India Company, or forces allied to and forming an integral part of the land forces operating on behalf of the Crown (North American Indians, for example).
The competition is open to both University Undergraduates and Sixth Form School Students. The Competition will award a prize of £300 for the winner and a prize of £100 for the runner-up, along with a Certificate. Prize winners will be invited to the subsequent Templer Medal and Prize event to be held in London the second half of April 2013.
The submissions should be about 3000 words in length. Additional instruction for authors, including the style guide and cover forms, can be downloaded from the society website at: http://www.sahr.co.uk/essay.html
Essays should be submitted electronically to Mr. Ilya Berkovich at firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadline of 1 March 2013.
Informal queries about the essay competition can be made to the SAHR student representative Ms. Ismini Pells at email@example.com
