    Most ARRSE regulars will be aware that we run an annual charity auction to raise funds for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. Over the years this has gone from strength to strength and last year we managed to raise over £5000 pounds which is an incredible testimony to the generosity of you, our members. I'm sure everyone is aware of the excellent work that they do but, if not, then please have a look at the Royal British Legion website.

    Every year we get some seriously interesting items to auction and this is definitely one of them. We've been very kindly donated a framed letter from HM Queen Elizabeth awarding new colours to First Battalion The Berkshire Regiment in 1956. Now I have no idea how much something like this is worth but I can't believe that someone with an interest in RGBW regimental history wouldn't want to own this ......
