2/5th Battalion (Territorial Force) Border Regiment (Cumberland)

(Redirected from 2/5th Border Regiment)


The 2/5th Battalion Border Regiment was formed at Kendal in October 1914 as a "second line" or home service battalion. Like the 2/4th Battalion, it moved to Blackpool where they billeted for a few months. Then, in November 1915, the Battalion was at Falkirk where it merged with 2/4th and 2/5th Battalions of the Royal Scots Fusiliers to form the 13th Battalion. In January 1916 it was finally absorbed into the 2/4th Battalion of the Royal Scots Fusiliers.[1]
