The Army

As the majority of this site refers to the Royal Berkshire Regiment in the Great War, we need to understand the context into which the Regiment fitted. This part deals with the Army in general and covers general topics that were specifically pertinent to its part in the Great War. In many cases the heading leads you to another site where the topic is explored in more depth or points to the section of this site where there is relevance to the Great War.

In the list below the section number within the site is shown, preceded by x to indicate that a pdf document is in place, n to indicate that a page has not yet been produced and p to indicate that a webpage has been created.
