Boer War (Royal Welsh Fusiliers)

Wrexham was historically a major garrison town, with the barracks at Hightown being the headquarters of the Royal Welch Fusiliers from 1877 until 2006.

The Royal Welch Fusiliers was an infantry regiment founded in 1689. The regiment became the Welch Regiment of Fusiliers in 1702, and the Prince of Wales's Own Royal Regiment of Welch Fusiliers in 1714.  At the same time, it was designated as the 23rd Regiment of Foot, which continued until 1881.  The spelling 'Welch' gradually gave way in popular usage to 'Welsh', but the Regiment stuck to the old spelling.  In 1920, the War Office finally agreed that the official spelling should be 'Welch'.

 The regiment recruited mainly in the north of the country.

The impressive memorial to those who died in the Boer Wars and the China Expedition is inside St. Giles Parish Church in the centre of Wrexham.
