Quick question to those in the know. What was the light dragoons role out there? Don't want anyone to break opsec, just wondering what role they was doing. Tanky or Infantry (yes I know their normal role is tanks) but ya never know with manpower shortages. If they was in a traditional role, then which tanks, MBT or recce?
I would also like to say "well done" but I have no idea what they did. Glad to see them back and getting a damned good welcome from Dereham. That crowd looked impressive for a small town and the pictures brought a tear to my eye.
The article said:
It was the biggest turnout of its kind in Dereham's living memory and senior military figures said it was one of the most successful welcome home parades anywhere in the country.
As more than 170 soldiers from the Swanton Morley-based regiment marched along the High Street and Church Street, the crowds clapped and cheered with pride, with many shouting well done boys and good on you.
