Back Badge Day

Today, (21st March) is Back Badge Day.

After the landing at Abuokir Bay in 1801, the French were driven back to Alexandria. A week later the French Counter attacked the Britich who had dug in arround the sand dunes.

During a confusing and desparate struggle, the 18th Foot (Gloucestershire Regiment) turned their rear rank about and fought back to back to drive off repeated French cavalry attacks.

Brass before and brass behind,
ne'er feared a foe of any kind..

..Except the Army Board
Ah so true Napier...strange how King's division regiments always come out on top in infantry reshuffles and the Light Division practically expands each time!
