Most of course were plain 'scarlet'. those that spring to mind that weren't

QDG - Blue
ScotsDG - Blue with yellow zig-zag
4/7DG - Blue
16/5L - Scarlet with black pipping
13/18H - Blue with a white top
17'21L Blue with white band and pipping

Oh how could I forget RH - crimson (as opposed to cowpat brown for their berets.... :roll: )

Since 1971 the powers that be have been fighting what seems an impossible battle! 37 years on and very little ground has been won. The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards shortened title is SCOTS DG. It is not, never has been. and will never be RSDG's . It is SCOTS DG, I say again SCOTS DG.... scots dg SCOTS DG scots dg, TO THOSE WHO EVEN AFTER 37 YEARS DON'T GET IT A VERY SIMPLE QUESTION.


what part of Scots DG don't you understand?
You RSDG's are all the same. :roll:





Easy, easy, easy! :clap:

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: )

I was trying to avoid the 'vandyke' bit in case people started calling those that wore it Dick (Vandyke) Heads.... :roll:

The official short name of 15th/19th The King's Royal Hussars (or 15/19 The King's Royal Hussars if you obey the Army "no ordinal numbers" rule) is 15/19H but let's not get precious about it the way the RSDG do.

We know what we are talking about and that's what matters. Though I did hear a good story post D-Day when a Septic unit received notification that as reinforement organised themselves for the breakout, 5 dcli would be moving through their positions.

Confused, the Septics eventually worked out that 5 Ducks, Craft, Landing, Infantry would be moving through their position. Imagine their surprise when an infantry battalion turned up.

15/19H: no lanyard. Also no brass belt hooks in the No2 Dress Jacket. I spent seven years in Rape And Pillage Company after leaving 15/19H and even after a change of No2 Dress (it seemed to be shrinking!), I removed the brass belt hooks. Nobody ever noticed. If they had I'd simply have told them that 15/19H removed them as a matter of course.

Much easier than cleaning them.
