Monmouthshire Regiment

Recommended Posts

I have viewed the Document Repository but I was unable to find anyone with a Unit history or War Diary for any Battalion of the Monmouthshire Regiment. Does anyone know of anyone with information on this unit.

Thanks to information received from a previous posting on this site I have

found further information in my research of my Grandfather but the information given on the back of his medals does not reveal what number

battalion he was in only the regiment name.

He is 1881 Pte Joseph Gibson he originally joined the Monmouthshire Regiment in 1914 but on returning to active service after being wounded he was transferred to the Welsh Regiment with the service number 53790.

Any information gratefully received

Kind regards

Martyn

The Regimental Museum at the Barracks in Brecon, Wales would probably have all the information and more (its remit includes The Monmouthshires and its successors).

Martyn,

With a number as low as that I would hazard a guess at 1/1 Bn. The definitive answer is to be found in the medal rolls at the PRO.

I believe a number of Monmouth men also found their way into the S Wales Borderers.
