2 RWF MARCH THROUGH NORTH WALES, 1892

ON THIS DAY IN ROYAL WELCH FUSILIERS 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.
