CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: In 1908, a reorganization of the United Kingdom's volunteer military forces saw the abolition of the Militia and the consolidation of the yeomanry and volunteers into the Territorial Force. During World War Two, the Territorial Army was doubled in size. On 1 January 1947 it was reconstituted as a part-time reservist force, largely as had existed in early 1939. In 1967 a further reorganization of the Territorial Army caused many regiments to lose their historic identities. The Cardiganshire Rifle Volunteer Corps were part of the 1st (Pembrokeshire) Volunteer Battalion from 1880, along with the Pembrokeshire Rifle Volunteers. In 1908, the battalion became part of the Royal Welsh Regiment. During the period 1947-1967, the unit was known as 4th (Carmarthenshire) Battalion, The Welch Regiment.
