PostSubject: The Oxfordshire and Buckinghanshire L.I.   Sun Jul 07, 2013 10:35 am

Hi all, in 1881 through Cardwell the 43rd and 52nd were amalgamated to
become the Ox and Bucks.and again through the Haldane reform of 1908
the regiment was reorganized. now.what i read somewhere was that
elements ( 4 companys ) of the SWB'S ( Territorial's, Militia )was drafted
to them to make up the numbers. is this correct. i have of course never
found that reference again. can somebody help with this please.scratch 
thank you

Xhosa2000,

The old 43rd was originally raised as Thomas Fowke's Regiment of Foot in 1741.

Then in 1747 it was renamed the 54th Regiment of Foot, later that same year became the 43rd Regiment of Foot.

In 1751 the regiment received the county designation 43rd (Monmouthshire) Regiment of Foot, and it would remain so until 1881 when it amalgamated with the 52nd (Oxfordshire) Regiment of Foot, to become the 1st Battalion Oxfordshire Light Infantry.

It may be the designation 'Monmouthshire' may have caused the confusion here as obviously Monmouthshire Militia were part of the 24th's reserve/volunteer forces, but 'Old Monmouth' were certainly a Light Infantry unit, and I am sure that there is a rifles' pace march entitled 'Old Monmouth'.

Hi kwajimu1879
                     Thanks for your quick response,
yes i must be confused, the reference is lost to
me and ive been racking my brain as to why i
had thought i had seen something... I have kept
a framed image of the Ox and Bucks which depicts
their Colours in 1908,

Will some kind person instruct me how to post images
please. cheers

Xhosa,

The way I do it is to post the image to a hosting site, I use Photobucket.

Once the image is on there copy the URL and then paste the URL within the text on your message.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

So for example the URL for the above image is [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I hope that helps?

the Colours are laid in a beautiful period
frame about 2ft 6 inches square. the silk
is very bright but to me the union flag
looks odd, there no fading at all.maybe
thats how it was. cheers xhosa.
