County Administrative Areas

At a meeting held earlier this year it was decided to change the RGBW Rifles Regimental Association constitution by splitting it into three to reflect the geographical territories from where the antecedent regiments were recruited: namely Gloucestershire and Bristol, Berkshire, and Wiltshire.

The overall aim of the County Offices will be to keep the name of The antecedent regiments alive in throughout the three counties and encourage those leaving the Rifles from the areas to join and be part of the wider family.
