One of the most famous of the English county regiments, 'The Glosters' carried more battle honours on their colours than any other Line regiment of the British Army. They were also unique in the Army for being the only regiment to wear a badge on the back of the cap as well as on the front, in recognition of an incident at the Battle of Alexandria in 1801. Raised in 1694 by Colonel John Gibson, the regiment saw service in Quebec with General Wolfe in 1759, in the Peninsular Wars and at Waterloo in 1815, in India and in the Crimea. Men of the regiment went on to serve in the Boer War, in both World Wars and in Korea. In 1994 The Royal Gloucestershire Berkshire and Wiltshire Regiment (RGBW) was formed, absorbing The Gloucestershire Regiment and effectively spelling the end of the individual identity of the Glosters. This third and final edition brings the three-hundred year story of this world-famous regiment to a close. It is generously illustrated with photographs, paintings and line drawings from the Regimental collection.
