Soldiers of Gloucester Museum

The Gloucestershire Regiment museum (The Soldiers of Gloucestershire)

The Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire and Wiltshire Regiment has two Museums. Because of the regimental merger of 1994 the title sometimes confuses researchers and family members when trying to obtain information from a museum bearing the 'Gloster' name. If you require any information about the Gloucestershire Regiment up to 1994, then follow this link or visit the museum at Custom House, the docks, Gloucester.

British Battles - Website

The Regiment today wears the 'Brandywine flash' behind the cap badge, having inherited it from the Royal Berkshires followed by DERR. The action leading to the wearing of this insignia actually came as a result of the actions of the 49th Light Company at the battle of Paoli at about the same time, but it has always been known as 'The Brandywine flash' Go to this site for fuller information and other battles of the same period.

The Officers - 8th Bn Royal Berks Regt

A private commemoration site by Andrew Tatham who's grandfather raised and commanded this Kitcheners battalion taking them into battle at Loos in 1915. Andrew has extensively studied all the officers who appeared in the battalion group photograph and travelled all over the world to establish contacts with family members. An excellent recommended site for anyone looking at this battalion.
