Welcome to Lightbobs.

From Wikipedia:-" Light Bobs can refer to various things:

a nickname for the British light infantry, first used during the American Wars of independence, and commonly applied to the Light Division during the  Napoleonic wars.

and / or

a nickname for the 52nd (Oxfordshire) Regiment of Foot”

This site is dedicated to the finest regiment in the British Army, 
The Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry (43rd & 52nd)


and in particular two of its battalions:-
The Buckinghamshire Battalion 
and 
The 2nd (Airborne) Battalion,
The Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry (52nd LI)

Alas the regiments are no more but their proud history and traditions were passed on to The Royal Green Jackets now part of the "Rifles".

Swift and Bold
