We will always need someone to tic-tock outside buck palace.
Only joking, 321 years went yesterday i know we weren't the first to go but the sad thing is we are not the last.

served alongside D&D in Iraq 04-05 quality troopers
always up for mayhem and drunkenness
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 ?

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

Go forward the Rifles.

Would have loved to have been there but 12000 miles is a long way to come.
Can't really believe that I joined 1st Devons 55 years ago either. The amalgamation with the Dorsets was a good one too. Will they have Devon and Dorsets included in their new title anywhere?

Sadly no. Though give it a couple of years and I reckon the old nicknames and county affiliations will start working their way back in. It was a great day and the turnout by the people of Exeter was astounding. An emotional and humbling experience.

Hey Brewmeister - Ian B got us mixed up.

Yeah it was a great day - pity The Ship ran outta beer eh. Wasn't gunna march through the city but soon had my arm twisted, glad I did as I would have regretted not doing so. Wouldn't have missed it. Massive turnout of ex members. The City was packed of serving and ex serving guys.

It was even more emotional in the bar lol, I thought the Salamanca Beer was a nice touch, It's always good to see mates you haven't seen in ages, I just hope the next Regi reunion is as good !.
