The 1st Garrison Battalion The Devonshire Regiment in World War One

Formed in August 1915, the Garrison Battalion consisted of men who, although unfit for battle, were capable of discharging garrison duties.  They served in Egypt and Palestine from October 1915 and were the last Devons to leave that theatre on their disbandment in the late summer of 1919.
