About 2nd Volunteer Battalion West Yorkshire Prince Of Wales Regiment:
 
This infantry unit was raised in 1685 and served in many British Army campaigns during its long history. In 1958, it merged with The East Yorkshire Regiment (The Duke of York's Own) to form The Prince of Wales’s Own Regiment of Yorkshire.
 
In 1858, the regiment raised a new 2nd Battalion, which was stationed in New Zealand and Australia throughout the 1860s. In 1880, 2nd Battalion moved to India, remaining there until it was sent to fight the Ashanti in West Africa in 1895. In November 1899, it deployed to the Boer War (1899-1902).
