  8. Only one thing they hate more than RSDG is...... Scots Grots (pre '71, but still a good abbreviation, but not as good as 16th Syph' though :twisted: )
  9. Plain old SDG doesn't go down well either. :wink:
  10. My bold correction there.

    (Come on, it seems we have a reputation to keep up- Promise that is as pernickity as I'll get! :wink: )
  11. I was trying to avoid the 'vandyke' bit in case people started calling those that wore it Dick (Vandyke) Heads.... :roll:
  12. The RSDG was made up from Rsg and the 3RD Carbineers in 71.

    15th/19th KRH red cap
    Household Cav. black with red piping and band on cap,Gold braid on peak
    Royal Hussars Maroon cap
  13. 5th Skins - Green with biege band and piping
    14/20 KRH - Red (slighty deeper shade than 15/19 and QOH)
    QRIH - Red

    Okay thats start on the lanyards! :D
  14. A curious oversight of Britains finest ,11 Hussars,CHERRY coloured caps.
