I have been perusing the forums and have come to the conclusion that traditionally the cavalry and guards regiments are the most prestigious. However I was wondering if this has changed at all throughout the ages or perhaps is even correct in the first place. If anyone could enlighten me regarding the more traditionally prestigious regiments and also the present, modern days ones. both in the opinions of the general public and within the military. If you could also mention those corps and regiments which may not be viewed with the same admiration. define prestigious as you will. and I am not restricting this to just infantry and cavalry.
