Irish Guards RSM

#1
Talking to a fella in BATUK, who's transferring out of his Battalion (1IG) to mine, as he says he'll never be RSM as the Battalion only has Irish or N Irish RSM's!!!

The fella was a bit of a bloater and I wasn't convinced does any one know of any truth in this


Thanks in advance

The monarch is head of all the Commonwealth realms but 'must be' English.

It's BO---KS! It used to be true, but there have been several non-Irish born RSMs in recent years. I can name at least 3 if I have to, and it's more than that.

He's probably a drag on the ration roll!!!

Used to be the same in the Scots Guards as well. Doubt it is true nowadays.

Thought Irish guards were all scousers.,,

I was going to say, if you had to be Irish to be the RSM, then it's a good career path as must be 60% of IG are from Liverpool (or Birkenhead)

If a decent bunch of the Irish Guards are Scousers, does the crime rate spike where they are based?
Armed robbery went up in Munster with micks involved!
