Unit History: Staffordshire Regiment
The Staffordshire Regiment officially gained its title in 1959, when he North and South Staffordshire Regiments amalgamated. However, it can trace its history back to 1705, when a regiment known as the 38th Foot was raised in Lichfield.
The two regiments were involved in a number of notable conflicts. These included the Zulu War, the First and Second World Wars, the Gulf War and the Iraq War.
In 2004, it was announced that the Staffordshire Regiment would be amalgamated with the Cheshire Regiment and the Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Regiment to form the Mercian Regiment. In September 2007, it became the 3rd Battalion Mercian Regiment (Staffords).
