CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: In 1908, the major reorganization of the United Kingdom's volunteer military forces, which saw the abolition of the Militia, also witnessed the consolidation of the yeomanry and volunteers into the Territorial Force, organised into regional (usually county) Territorial Force Associations, including the Monmouthshire Territorial Force Association. Since 1859, volunteer infantry corps had been organised into battalions; from 1881, they were attached to regular infantry regiments. During the First World War, Territorial Forces were mobilised; in 1920 they were re-constituted as the Territorial Army. It was mobilised for the Second World War, and many Territorial Army units were assigned to the Royal Artillery and in 1947, it was reconstituted as a part-time reservist force, largely as had existed in early 1939. A major reorganization of the Territorial Army in 1967 caused many regiments to lose their historic identities. The Territorial and Auxiliary Forces Association was dissolved in 1968.
