Swindon connection

Swindon connection

People who were born, lived or worked in Swindon, Wiltshire, or who had a parent who lived there. Swindon was a railway town so almost all would have been employed by the Great Western Railway. Most served in the Wiltshire Regiment or Royal Engineers but some served in other branches of the armed forces, including the Royal Navy.
