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. Been sitting in my collection for some time. I believe it belongs to some species of Hussar, but not sure which?

    Top part appears to be 7th Queen's Own Hussars
    Bottom appears to be 3rd The Kings' Own Hussars

    3/7 Hussars, anyone?
     
  3. Queens Own Hussars - Officers cap badge!

    So ... QOH (the intertwined QO) absorbed 3rd KO somewhere along the line (= the White Horse")?

    7th QOH used to be "QO" in a circlet saying "7th Queen's Own Hussars" under the Crown.

    That is the curse of having only one book on Regimental Badges ... dated 1951.
    Six years out of date, and look what happens :wink: :lol:

    You'll end up like the RAF ... "The Air Defence Squadron [5/19/23/74th"], or the "Last Tank Regiment" [1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8.9.10th]"
     
  13. 12 months is a long time in british military history these days...
     
  14. Les Dawson was in the BAYS,not the Queers on Horseback,or as some think the 13/18th the Milkmen.Not that he liked the Army, he always refused requests for shows for his old Regt even when in NI.

    Would have been funny if he´d joined the ´Black Mafia´though :roll:
     
  15. Where's the picture, what's it look like?
