Focusing on the period between the First World War and 1959, the date of the regiments amalgamation with the Royal Berkshire Regiment when they formed the Duke of Edinburgh’s Royal Regiment (Berkshire and Wiltshire), this painstakingly researched book uses over 200 photographs to vividly document the Wiltshire Regiment’s role in many campaigns and battles from the trenches on the Western Front to terrorists in Cyprus in 1959, from Shanghai through to the Second World War. Some of the images are intensely moving, some funny, and all are accompanied by detailed text which endeavours to tell the stories behind the images.”
