Somerset Light Infantry

The origins of the Somerset Light Infantry date back to the late 1600s, when it was one of nine regiments raised by James II in response to the Monmouth Rebellion.

During the First World War, a total of eighteen battalions were raised by the regiment, and served on the Western Front, Mesopotamia and Palestine.
