A History of the 5th (Service) Battalion Wiltshire Regiment 1914-1919. Meet the Author

Paula Perry's long awaited book is now in stock at the museum, the only place where you can buy it. Available to personal callers or from our online shop.

Paula was at the museum on Tuesday 11th December to sign further copies of her book.

The 5th (Service) Battalion of the Wiltshire Regiment became the Regiment's forgotten Battalion. It served at Gallipoli, in Mesopotamia, the North-West frontier of India and Persia. Paula Perry's grandfather served in this Battalion and in writing this book, Paula has set the record straight. Within its almost 300 pages are 158 images, 27 maps (most in colour), cemetery information, rolls of honour, gallantry awards and an index. At £19.99 this is a book that anyone interested in the 5th Battalion, the Wiltshire Regiment or the campaigns in Gallipoli and Mesopotamia should have.
