Do you have Romany, Traveller or Fairground ancestors who served in the Armed Services and who lived in or travelled through Wiltshire? If so the Reverend Jonathan Herbert, Chaplain to Gypsies and Travellers in Wiltshire and Dorset, would like to hear from you.

Jonathan is currently working with Wiltshire Museums on a project to showcase the involvement of Travellers in the Army, Royal Navy and RAF particularly in the two World Wars and your input would be very welcome.

If you can help, please contact the RTFHS in the first instance at and we’ll pleased be to pass your message on to Jonathan.
