At the outbreak of the Civil War, hundreds of little people from a small island in the Atlantic Ocean enlisted in the Union Army. This is their story.
When I was in Bosnia, we had a company assigned to us and used them for cleaning gun barrels (and mouse catching). They were a great bunch of lads, also they didn't need to eat much so we gave the extra rations to some of the starving kids we used to pass on the way to Vitez/Gornji Vakuf and other places.
I recently read Bullet Magnet. About a guy who served in the Blues & Royals. He has been everywhere - Falklands, Norn Ireland, Gulf, Bosnia, Afghan, Iraq. All with his own regiment. Not on attachment to another mob.
Remember, they only have one regiment. Not like some infantry mobs with up to 3 regular battalions, and two or 3 reserve.
