REGIMENTAL JOURNALS
Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment
(Berkshire & Wiltshire)

The Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment like most Infantry Regiments in the British Army produced its own in-house Regimental Journal. They followed the tradition of the Royal Berkshires Regimental Journal 'The China Dragon' first produced in 1907, and the Wiltshire Regiments Journal first produced in the early 1920s. Like most in-house magazines it provides an insight into the daily life of a county Infantry Regiment, and in historical terms is worth its weight in gold. In the very near future the Regimental Journals will be             produced on CD-ROM
