With the exception of obituaries, this website will not have any new material added to it other than what you see.
This website was founded by Keith Petvin-Scudamore in 2002 – to pay tribute to the men who served in the regiment. The site is now in the care of David & Kathy Blacklock
The Somerset & Cornwall Light Infantry
(A 9 Year Regiment)
Webmaster estimates that during those 9 years, 3000 soldiers served with the regiment; more than 240 are recorded in Obituary pages.

Review by Richard Holmes
The real merit of the British infantry across the centuries has been to preserve qualities when organisations change, for change they must in a world where few things are constant. But none of this stopped me having to blink rather hard when I saw the photograph of Colonel Williams leading his troops out of the depot at Bodmin for the last time.
