Steve Hammond talks about his research and interest in the Queen Westminster Rifles during the First World War.
The Queen’s Westminsters were an infantry regiment of the Territorial Army, part of the British Army. Originally formed from Rifle Volunteer Corps, which were established after a French invasion scare of 1859. The unit became part of the newly established London Regiment on the formation of the Territorial Force in 1908. During the Great War they served on the Western Front, for most of their time as part of the 56th Division.
