Linda Robson is a volunteer at the Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire, and Wiltshire Regiment Museum and has agreed to act as a contact for this page and can if necessary try to reply to any queries anyone has regarding this page and the military side of Wiltshire.

Wiltshire is steeped in Military History therefore this page is meant to house any military records we have in one place that may not be related to a single parish.
