Wiltshire Regiment WW1 Memorial Plaque in Salisbury Cathedral?
« on: Tuesday 07 August 18 21:31 BST (UK) »
Many years ago (probably late 1980's) we viewed a memorial naming the Wiltshire Regiment soldiers who died in WW1. It was in Salisbury Cathedral, either on the cathedral wall inside or the cloister wall. Today we visited again and could not find the plaque anywhere, and none of the guides or the vergers (who had been there for at most 16 years) could recall it? My wife's great uncle Pte. Charles Simmonds was named on it. Are we going mad or can anyone confirm it was there? There are other Wiltshire plaques and regimental flags but none relating to WW1. Strangely there is one blank space on the wall with two plugged holes for screws but the cathedral insist nothing was ever there?

I have also posted this on the WW1 forum.
