Whilst there have been individual memorials around the county, and that includes probably the best small military museum in the country based in Gloucester, the Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum, there has never been a formal memorial celebrating the whole life of this famous Regiment from 1694-1994. A team of veterans and volunteers seek, with your help, to rectify that. 

Our vision is to construct a memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum (NMA) and to achieve this we must raise a target of £60,000. The finished memorial will give true recognition, on a National and International scale, to the contribution made by the Gloucestershire Regiment to the Crown and Country for 300 years, and will stand as testament to this for future generations.

Please support us in our Vision, however large or small your gift may be.

The Gloucestershire Regiment

The Gloucestershire Regiment, commonly referred to as the Glosters, was a line infantry regiment of the British Army from 1881 until 1994. It traced its origins to Colonel Gibson’s Regiment of Foot raised in 1694, which later became the 28th (North Gloucestershire) Regiment of Foot. The regiment was formed by the merger of the 28th Regiment with the 61st (South Gloucestershire) Regiment of Foot. It inherited the unique privilege in the British Army of wearing a badge on the back of its headdress as well as the front, an honour won by the 28th Regiment when it fought in two ranks back-to-back at the Battle of Alexandria in 1801. At its formation the regiment comprised two regular, two militia and two volunteer battalions, and saw its first action during the Second Boer War. Read more
