Ongoing indexing of the men of the Royal Garrison Regiment. The RGR were a force raised in the UK in 1901 to man the Garrison posts of Gibraltar & Malta and later Canada & South Africa. The unit existed from 1901 to 1905 and raised 5 Battalions in total, the men being numbered to around 8500. The men in the RGR were normally veteran soldiers who had completed one period of service (12 years) and were enlisted both from Militia units and those troops returning from South Africa as 'time expired'. In their number they had men who had fought in all campaigns from the Zulu war to the Boer War as well as several winners of DCM's. Their papers are often to be found separate to those of Regular Troops and this was why I indexed these men. The partial index (containing RGR number, name, place of birth and former regiment) can be found HERE. Any questions on the men, or requests for service papers, please contact me.
