"The Sardinian expeditionary force sent to the Crimea in 1855 was made up of detachments drawn from the various peacetime units. The details of these provisional battalions and regiments can be found in the excellent booklet Crimean War Basics, Part One, by Cox and Lenton. This article, though, presents the prewar organization which was the basis for the Sardinian contingent sent to the Crimea. The source is the Annuario Militare Ufficiale dello Stato Sardo per l'Anno 1854, published by the Ministero di Guerra in Torino. A copy is held by the New York Public Library. The information in the Annuario Militare was supposed to be current as of 1 January 1854. Place names are given in Italian, so the reader may need to be reminded that Torino is Turin, Genova is Genoa, and Nizza is Nice (now in France)…."
