Hart's 1908 Army List

I see Ancestry has published Hart's Army List for 1908.  If it's anything like the Army List for 1909 on my desk at work it's a mighty tome.  The 1908 list publishes, for the last time, details of officers serving with the militia.  One year later and the militia was a thing of the past, replaced by Special Reserve and Extra Reserve battalions.  For me, the beauty of these books is not only details of the men in every conceivable British Army unit, but the incidental adverts like the ones above and below.
