The history of the Company name
The company gets its name from a WW2 Wiltshire Regiment Battle Honour. From March until late May 1944, the regiment fought in the Battle of Anzio, enduring terrible conditions and fighting in trench warfare, similar to that on Western Front nearly 30 years before. They later fought in the breakout from the Anzio beachhead, Operation Diadem and the subsequent capture of Rome.
