The Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry – often shortened to the Ox and Bucks – were created in 1881 as part of the Childers Reforms of the British Army.
During the First World War, the Ox and Bucks raised 12 battalions, six of which fought on the Western Front, two in Italy, two in Macedonia and one in Mesopotamia. The regiment won 59 battle honours, including two Victoria Crosses. During the conflict, the regiment lost 5,878 officers and men.
