The Wiltshire Regiment in the First World War - 2nd Battalion


A paperback book of 362 pages. with the addition of a Battalion Overview, a detailed account of the First Battle of Ypres together with a personal account of the same battle, a Roll Of Honour, Awards and Decorations, the Organisation of Battle and an Index makes this latest edition an improved version.   This book is for all those with an interest in the 2nd Wiltshires during World War 1. The original diary is only to be seen at the National Archives at Kew, London, so publishing this transcript will assist all those who are interested and also hopefully reduce the demand to see the originals.  This revised publication and a transcription of the 2nd Battalion War Diary for the period August 1914 – April 1919 will hopefully give as complete a picture as possible.
