Last Twelve Years


The Last Twelve Years - An account of the final years of the Royal Berkshire Regiment, from 1947 to 1959, by Major F C Myatt MC.

This book tells the story of the last twelve years of this fine English County Regiment. It picks up the story in Eritrea, followed by postings to Egypt, Colchester, Germany, Malta and finally Cyprus where they were engaged in operations against EOKA. In 1959 they were amalgamated with the Wiltshire Regiment to form the Duke of Edinburgh\'s Royal Regiment (Berkshire and Wiltshire). [The Regiments early years were recorded by F. Loraine Petre OBE up to 1920, and from 1920 to 1947 by Gordon Blight. This publication finishes the story]
