I spent 17 years in the 17/21 and loved every minute of it and I am Welsh. See also QRL.COM and ITROOPLANCERS to contact members and former members of 16/5. 17/21 Lancers. Most of the boys come from the Staffs, Notts Area but you can't hold that against them ,some of them can almost read

I'm hoping to join the QRL as soon as I can, In response to the question about recruiting areas, I'm in Northants, would it be difficult to get into the QRL or would I get pressured into the 9/12L? I was told to say that my grandad was 16/5, apparently it works a charm.

I'm currently TA but my civvy job has gone all pete tong so I'm trying to go Regular, but all the paperwork is complicating things. I have settled on the QRL as I have a mate in the Regt, and so far I have heard good things. But what are peoples opinions of the Regiment? are they good lads to work with?

Thanks in advance

Why? Did they nick all the silverware?

The regiments silver was a spoil of war and was not stolen and Napoleon Didn't want it back as he was going on holiday

So Napoleon was in Buckingham Palace and parked his silverware there, then while he was on holiday QRL broke in while they were on ceremonial duties and nicked it?

I missed this! Must go a-googling.

Or is this a guilty conscience lol?

You are implying that the Lancers are a theiving shower, when in fact they mearly collect shiny things on a grand scale

I think Tropper, hasnt quite got what you were on about B :D No, Buck house once was enough, some other RACs Regiments have it to look forward to.

Tropper, QRL isnt 16/5th or 17/21st, they may be the 'parents' but QRL has proved itself.
