Kirkburton - West Riding

Location unknown

'G' 5 Duke of Wellington’s West Riding Regiment.

The 'G' 5 Duke of Wellington’s West Riding Regiment was listed in the Territorial Year Book 1909 as new company of former 2nd Volunteer Battalion; and it was recorded that that they used a drill room.

It has been suggested that there is a drill hall, c 1911, extant on Huddersfield road, in use as a health centre. Confirmation of this would be welcome.
