Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry

Created in 1881 as part of the Childers Reforms of the British Army, the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry was formed through the amalgamation of the Cornwall Light Infantry and the South Devonshire Regiment.

As with other entities of the military ranks, the outbreak of the First World War saw a dramatic increase in the size of the regiment; battalions went on to serve on all fronts of the conflict, from the Western Front to India, from Egypt and Mesopotamia to the Home Front.
