HLI Community


This is the community section of the website where our members can look for friends, tell a story about the HLI, contribute to further research on the Regiment and share family history research.


Please Note

The HLI association does not hold service records, and cannot answer enquiries regarding individual soldiers.  The  Royal Highland Fusiliers Museum may be able to help or offer advice.  The RHF Museum charge a fee for research but it is quite a modest one. (Currently £20)  Details of archival resources held and further information can be found here:


The views and comments found here are of the online membership and do not necessarily reflect those of the Highland Light Infantry Association.


It is organised into four categories:





1. Find a Friend - This section is intended for former serving members to help connect old friends and comrades. For family history research see below. ( go to section )





2. HLI Stories - This section is for personal memories or recollections from those who served with the Regiment or stories from friends and family of those who served. ( go to section )








3. HLI Research - This section is for formal research into the Regiment and is intended to be academic in tone rather than purely personal.          ( go to section )






4. Family History Research - This section is where members can share family history research. Please keep this section focused on the HLI and associataed Regiments. ( go to section )





5. The Last Post - This section is reserved for 'In Memoriam' notices on recently fallen comerades. ( go to section )










Submissions to the HLI Community section can be made through the HLI Community Menu on the left (registered users only).


Full guidelines and instruction for use can be found here.

Could anyone guide me on the best way of finding any information on Private Rowland Williams Edwards 30/08/13, army number 3325089.

Private Edwards was enlisted 14/6/40 and served in 2nd Battalion Highland Light Infantry.

I am in possession of his pay book and other artefacts including 39/45 Star, Italy Star, Africa Star, war medal and defence medal.

I would appreciate any information or where I could obtain information on service history postings etc.

Best regards

Carl Price, Grandson
