On 31st August...
...1946 the 1st Royal Berkshire war diary entry reads:
1 BOR proceeded to Karachi on posting to 16th Para Bn. A.A.G. Bn. Stand-By during I.D. Festivals. Reference to Appendices Appendices I - 3 + 4. AFW- 3008 and 3009. [Signed] A.J. Lucking Captain. Adjutant. 1st Bn The Wiltshire Regiment.
Each regiment maintained a Digest of Service. This was a journal which recorded events in the life of the regiment. There was no set format and the amount of detail varied between regiments. Summary information has been extracted, and is presented here, from each of the four regiments' digests run from their formation until 1914.
