    Not sure but my bold could be your answer
  3. Toot-tee-too!
  4. A most concise answer, so the Light cav band wear the RAC badge, thanks. The girl marching band were quite something as well!!
  5. Didn't see it for some reason mainly to do with the woman i am presently married to but it makes you appreciate the past when Regiments had there own bands.

    I often ask myself, although we are one of the richest nations on the planet, why are we making do with less and less ?
  6. Commander,

    I am making further enquiries with old band member from my Regiment at present, just to make sure (I am interested myself)> Will get back to you.

    I saw that and clocked the RAC badge and thought the same thought. However I thought I had seen a LD badge on one of those dressed like LD. But I could have been wrong.
