The London Regiment was formed on 1st April 1908 when the old Volunteer battalions became part of the new Territorial Force. In the majority of cases the new Territorial battalions were linked to a regiment of the regular army but the London Regiment was unique in that it contained no regular battalions.
It was the largest infantry regiment in the army with 26 battalions in peacetime, eventually increasing to 88 battalions over the course of the First World War.
It was also the only regiment in the army that did not have a regimental badge - each battalion having its own individual cap badge.
Its battalions were frequently made up of men recruited from the same part of London, such as the 11th battalion (the Finsbury Rifles) or who followed the same occupation - the 8th battalion (Post Office Rifles ), or who were expatriates living in London - the 14th battalion (London Scottish).
