This is a list of Wiltshire Regiment Other ranks who were taken prisoner of war on or before the 25th December 1914.  My transcription is taken from a single Imperial War Museum source:
  • B.O.2 1/313 which is a handwritten letter and accompanying 20-page hand-written list of Wiltshire Regiment men submitted by No 1 Infantry Record Office, Exeter; letter dated 1st May 1919. 
The full transcription, not reproduced here, gives some or all of the following additional information:
  • battalion
  • date of capture
  • home address
  • next of kin name
  • next of kin address
There are nearly 700 names in this database and any transcription errors are my own. I will be pleased to supply additional information about these men as applicable and will be delighted to publish photos of any of the men mentioned below.
