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'.

a framed image of the Ox and Bucks which depicts
their Colours in 1908,

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 image.]

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?
