The Wiltshire Regiment's history is well documented in photographs. This book takes advantage of the many photographs of the regiment from its conception in 1756 through to the beginning of the First World War. Including the regiment's involvement in the Zulu War, Crimea, the US revolution of Independence, the Napoleonic Wars, Afghanistan and the Boer Wars, this pictorial history will appeal to both military and family historians. Although not designed to be a comprehensive regimental history, a synopsis of the regiment's activities is provided, in particular events that led to the wearing of certain insignia, and nicknames and significant anniversaries. The many facets of regimental life are caught on camera and the book is packed full of information about the Wiltshire Regiment's illustrious service history, and the fascinating stories which occurred in service life, which would otherwise be forgotten.
