The Pembrokeshire Trained Bands of 1638 consisted of 557 men armed with 276 muskets and 281 corslets (body armour, signifying pikemen). They also mustered 57 horse.

On 18th September 1643 the Earl of Carbery summoned the Pembrokeshire Trained Bands to Haverfordwest, where they declared for the King.

By 1651 the militias of the South Welsh counties appear to have been combined, with the South Wales militia being ordered to rendezvous at Gloucester to hold the city during the Worcester campaign.
