  2. My question fit into the topic title so no need to start another.

    I hope there are some Guards or someone out their that can help me.

    Looking at photos of some Scots guards it struck me that I could not make out the Blue/Maroon badge backing.

    Was it not worn in '82?

    Also was the tartan badge backing of Scots Guards Officers worn in '82?

    When did the backing(s) come in?
  3. Do you mean the Blue Red Blue backing?

    If so its the Household divisions flash. If l remember rightly it only came about in the 90's

  4. Scots Guards return
  5. Nice find thanks.
  6. Can anyone shed light on the following snippet of info please.

    Who did they serve with (RM?) and in what numbers?
  7. Before your thread gets hijacked out of existence..

    Didn't they arrive just in time for the end
    I believe they took over from The Parachute Regiment and became the first resident inf unit
    I think they also took part in the recovery of bodies etc from the ships
  12. That was the Queens Own Highlanders.

    Sorry you are correct
    Rather you didn't mention it to my brother in law he was there with them :wink:
  14. Was that the LT that got some 7.62 in the legs? Yeah I know of him.

    The little info I have from A&SH webs amongst others imply's there were more than one but less than Bn strength attached to other units. Just wondered who to and in what capacity.
