The Welsh Guards are part of the modern British Army, in a section called the Guards Division, which is part of the Household Division. In February 1915 by order of King George V the Welsh Guards were formed. The king wanted to include Wales into the national part of the Foot Guards, as there was at the moment only the Irish and the Scots Guards representing the celtic nations of the UK.
Their first campaign was in August 1915 in the First World War. The 1st Battalion of the Welsh Guards sailed of to France to join the Guards Division already there. They first saw combat a few months later at the Battle of Loos. The first Victoria Cross awarded to someone from this regiment went to Sergeant Robert Bye in 1917 for his herioc and courageous involvemnet in the Third Battle of Ypres. This was the regiment`s first VC medal and not to be the last.
The Welsh Guards saw action in the Second World War in the North African and Italian campaigns to name but a few and more recently in the Falklands War and Afghanistan.Read more
