2nd September 1882 ON THIS DAY IN RWF HISTORY

2 RWF march through North Wales, 1892

When the 2nd Battalion returned from Ireland a recruiting march was planned from Holyhead to Wrexham. Some of the journey was covered by train and the route included Bangor, Caernarfon,
Harlech, Dolgellau, Llanrwst, Abergele, St Asaph, Denbigh, Corwen, Llangollen and Wrexham. Officers and men were lavishly entertained along their route. Only a few recruits came forward and the Goat was accidentally killed.
