The Suffolk Regiment began its life in 1685 when Henry, 7th Duke of Norfolk, raised a regiment in Norfolk and Suffolk as part of the forces of James II to meet the threat of the Monmouth Rebellion. The regiment was known in its early years by the names of the various colonels who commanded it.
During the course of the Great War the Regiment expanded from five to 23 Battalions. The 1st Battalion spent most of the war in Salonika, while the majority of the others fought on the Western Front. The regiment also saw fighting in Gallipoli, Egypt and Palestine.
As a result of the conflict, 360 officers and 6,513 other soldiers were killed.
