Sutton Veny - Units During the 1st World War

This list is based on British Regiments 1914 - 1918 (Samson 1978) by Brig E A James. The author compiled his work from Regimental histories which sometimes gave imprecise locations, for example just 'Salisbury Plain'. There are indications of confusion between the camps at Sutton Veny and those at Sand Hill and Heytesbury.
