THE AIM :- of this section is to cover the activities of the 1st Battalion Wiltshire Regiment from 1948, when the 1st & 2nd Battalions merged during the post war reorganization of the British Army through to 1959 when they amalgamated with the 1st Battalion Royal Berkshire Regiment. We will highlight the activities of those who served during that time, and who later went on to serve in and make the 1st Battalion Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment, the Regiment it was.

If you served in this Battalion between these dates we would welcome any comments or assistance you can offer the 'Farmers boys' Website Team.
