The Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment (Berkshire & Wiltshire)
The Farmer’s Boys
The sun had set beyond yon hill, Across the dreary moor, When weary and lame, a boy there came, Up to the farmer's door, "Can you tell me whe'ere I be, And one that will me employ," To plough and sow, to reap and mow, And be a farmer's boy, And be a farmer's boy?
We have four “official”reunions throughout the year, three of which are organised by the Regimental Association and one independent reunion.
The Devizes Reunion
This reunion is organised by the Regimental Association and is held on a Sunday in early June. It’s format is a church service followed by a lunch among friends and comrades.
The Hungerford Reunion
An informal reunion for all Farmers Boys, Wives, Partners offspring and friends on Saturday 10th June. The RBL are delighted to welcome us back again and will make the bars and some simple food available. If you can also make it along there on the Friday night or into The Three Swans on Saturday lunchtime that would be amazing. Please pass the word to Farmers Boys not on FB too. Plenty of accommodation available in and around the town but it will go quickly so get your bedspaces booked!
