The museum of the Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire and Wiltshire Regiment contains many thousands of photographs graphically illustrating the history of the forming regiments. Tracing the history of the Royal Berkshire Regiment through both world wars and up to the date of its amalgamation with the Wiltshire Regiment to form the Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment, this fascinating collection contains many rare images of those who served. Featured are over 200 archive photographs with informative commentary, providing a sympathetic record of the regiment over this period and evocatively charting its activities both at home and abroad, at peace and in war, from the call up of the reserves in 1914 to its final activities against terrorists in Cyprus in 1959. Martin McIntyre is a volunteer at the Regimental Museum in Salisbury, and is a former member of the Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment.
