Battalion Timeline, Posting and Deployment record

 

This page will give a year by year record of the Battalions postings and sub deployments. The Regiment started its life in Alma Barracks, Catterick a location known to the Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment having served there in the late 1960s and early 70s. The Gloucestershire Regiment were in Alma Barracks  just prior to the amalgamation, so it was a fitting place for the Battalion to start its travels.
