Cambrai Day

Discussion in 'RAC' started by PE4rocks, Nov 20, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. "Please convey my warm thanks to the Colonels Commandant, Officers, Other Ranks and present members of the Royal Tank Regiment and the Regimental Association for their message of loyal greetings, sent on the occasion of the Ninety-Second Anniversary of the Battle of Cambrai.

    As your Colonel-in-Chief, I much appreciate your kind words and, in return, send my best wishes to all those who are present on this most special anniversary".

    ELIZABETH R.




    "From the Colonel Commandant, the Deputy Colonel Commandants, Regimental Colonel, Regimental Secretary and all the staff at Regimental Headquarters to all serving and retired officers and soldiers of the Royal Tank Regiment, to wish you a highly successful and enjoyable day on the Ninety-Second Anniversary of the Battle of Cambrai. Fear Naught!"
     
  2. Happy Cambrai Day. But, let us not forget why, there is a Cambrai Day. The day that truly heralded a change in the way Warfare would be conducted forever.
