As part of Operation Legacy, the Friends are going to record here on our website, the events of the Great War as they happened 100 years ago.
Starting now with the events of March 1914 before the Great War commenced, we will regularly post information on the events, actions and individuals of the numerous Battalions of the Regiment.
We will not be updating the site daily as quite often, lengthy periods of time were spent by the men of the Regiment in the lines or in rest camps when, as the official War Diaries simply put it, there was "nothing to report.”
However it is hoped that as the years of the Centenary progress, we will build up a new online archive of Suffolk Regiment History, interspersed with information about the men who fought with the "Old Dozen" one hundred years ago.
We will be using this format - a sort of “mini-blog,” to record the events, so please do keep coming back to see how the Great War progressed for both the Suffolk and Cambridgeshire Regiments.
Welcome to our online 'blog' charting the history of the many Battalions of the Suffolk Regiment and the part they played in the Great War.

Keep checking back to see how the Great War is progressing for the men of the Suffolk Regiment.
