news report: KRH back from Iraq

Post by Boots O'Lead » Wed Mar 12, 2008 11:10 pm

About half way down the page there's a vid of the guys coming back from Iraq - Lt Col Orr appears to like his pies (nice to see a proper hawk in charge)

Not too impressed with the capbadge though

Loads of money and no work - ah well! wishfull thinking

Great they are all back safely yes it was Mr Tilney you spotted he was my 1st troop leader when I joined up in Herford. But when I last saw him he was Major Tilney his son is the spitting image of him.

Nice to see all back safely.

One thing i've noticed these days and can't understand is the position of the cap badge, Lt Col Orr had is in the correct position,loads seem to have them over the side of their face,have we teamed up with the french on this?

This seems to apply with most regiments these days.

:) I no we must move with the times, and not get stuck in "our world", but I can think of a dozen RSMs who must be spitting nails at the General Turnout in these Modern Times! :oops: Bill

In my time it was a trend to try and wear your cap badge as near to the centre as possible - but was very difficult with RSM's like Sid Jude around
