    Default Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry in the desert.

    Well gents, I thought I might post up some photos of my regiment from WW2. They were originally taken in 1942 during the North African campaign, although one or two of them could be in Italy or later. I have to apologise in advance for the quality as I had to capture them using my iphone, so on some there's reflective glare. Anyway I hope you find them interesting.

    Right i've now worked out how to put photos straight onto the post so here goes;


    Here are some some soldiers from the regiment in Palestine in 1941. For the first few years the regiment was operating searchlights.


    Here you see one of the Regiment's AFVs driving through Cairo (allegedly, i'm not too sure, but thats what I've been told)


    Here's a troop formed up for this photo, notice how they're diffy the troop's 4th tank.


    Another photo taken in the desert.


    Notice how this Sherman has 'Cricklade' on the side. The regiment named all their vehicles after pubs and villages from it's native Wiltshire.

    Anyway, hope you find these interesting.

    Nice pics, especially Cricklade. The Priest in the 2nd Pic wasn't Wilts Yeomanry though, but I dare say the photographer was!

    Hello,
    I wonder if you could tell me where the photographs are situated (that is to say, where is 'the wall' upon which they hang?) I am trying to find photographs of Sherman Tank 'HIGHWORTH', the subject of one of your pictures, and I would appreciate the opportunity to view the original/obtain a copy of the original.

    Thank you

    Question Re: Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry in the desert.

    Hi, my late father-in-law was in the Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry during WWII and one of the guys in your photo no. 55, looks just like him. I wondered if you could tell me a little more about the photo. Possibly where it was taken and also is the photo in your possession and if not is it on display somewhere where we could go and have a proper look? We've just sent off for his war records, to find out a little more about his war.

    I'm afraid that Iron Yeoman (AKA Student Scaley) hasn't been on since February. I'm almost certain that he will have seen the originals hanging on the wall of a TA centre, and given the regiment it is most likely to be that belonging to B Squadron, Royal Wessex Yeomanry in Old Sarum. The MoD website gives the following contact details:

    The Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry Squadron

    The Permanent Staff Administrative Officer
    B (The Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry) Squadron
    The Royal Wessex Yeomanry
    Old Sarum House
    Portway, Old Sarum
    Salisbury, Wiltshire
    SP4 6BY

    01722 438300

    email the Permanent Staff Adminitrative Officer on RWXY-BSQNPSAO@mod.uk

    PSAOs tend to be rather busy people so you may have to wait a while for a reply, but they should get back to you eventually.

    Thank you so much for your quick reply on behalf of Iron Yeoman. You have been most helpful. I'll contact Old Sarum - wish me luck!
