Gloucestershire Regiment

 Briefing Board

THE AIM:- Of this section is to cover the activities of the 1st Battalion Gloucestershire Regiment from 1981,  through to 1994 when they amalgamated with the 1st Battalion the Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment. We will highlight the activities of those who served at that time and who later made an impact in forming the 1st Battalion Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire and Wiltshire Regiment. We are covering the last 12 years of the Gloucester's existence to balance the time scales with the Royal Berkshires and Wiltshire sections displayed on this website.

If you served in this Battalion between the relevant dates the 'Farmersboys' Website team would welcome any comments or assistance
