    they'll be missed, except by the residents that live alongside the new barracks currently being built in Exeter.
    How long before the locals want them gone cos they lower the house prices ?

  12. farewell Janners
  13. A very sad day, but onwards and upwards, at least they remain in a Rifles form, rather then completly going.

    Go forward the Rifles.
