This post will look at numbering in the Denbighshire Yeomanry between 1908 and 1914.
In 1914 The Denbighshire Yeomanry was headquartered at No. 1 Erdigg Road, Wrexham with A Squadron also based in Wrexham and with drill stations at Llangollen, Mold and Rusbon. B Squadron was based in Denbigh with drill stations at Prestatyn, Rhyl and Ruthin. C Squadron was based in Bangor with drill stations at Carnarvon, Llandudno and Beaumaris. D Squadron was based at Birkenhead. The regiment was part of the Welsh Border Mounted Brigade.
Numbering started from 1 in April 1908 and continued at a snail's pace over the next six years. The majority of 1908 enlistments were men who had formerly served with the Imperial Yeomanry.
