Dorsetshire Regiment

Established in 1881, the Dorsetshire Regiment – also known as the Dorset Regiment, or just the Dorsets – were stationed in Malta, Egypt, India and Ireland over the years. The 2nd Battalion were sent to South Africa in 1899, where they were involved in the Relief of Ladysmith.

When the Great War broke out, the battalion were sent to various locations around the world, having gained experience since the regiment’s formation.
