Try this link, it takes you to our Regimental forum. It is mainly populated by us ex-4/7DG but there are a few of the lads serving with the Regiment in it's current format who post. There is also regular updates from Iraq etc.
Good luck in your endeavour.

MJ, I know what you mean about the trousers, you have got to love them, fine piece of history!!

As heavycav says, the regiment is split at the minute, some did a half tour due to not being needed in theatre and came back to strengthen the rear party (and boost bar profits). The rest of the regiment is due back in the next few weeks, after some much earned POTL, they will then start the painful task of packing up and moving back to Catterick ready to put the flag up at the back end of summer. It will all be worth it in the end, prodominently northern regiment based in the North of England.... gotta be a good thing!! :clap:

Busted, there's a problem with the amazing forums site at the moment and we all seem to be frozen out.

So we have to just wait out until we get to know the problem and whether or not we will be getting a new forum for the RDG's.

:D Capt Willard, dont you like the nice blue hat ? How much of your hair fell out? Were you ever part of the AML?? :D
33A - Hat is nice by itself, trousers are obviously to die for but as the old saying goes; 'blue and green should ne'er be seen, except upon a fool' and all that...

AML? Are you talking about opposing the goatee-legged ones who sacrifice the Virgin Connie Swales?

Or another AML?... :viking:
 
#19
:clap: :1: :D Ho Ho The very same AML,I believe I have the honour to be one of the few "remaining" founders :D Good to see so manyl serving members at Cav Mem, though have to say not many of "us" about.
Perhaps a green hat with a primrose band would go ? :D

Most definitely sir. I can tell that you are indeed a gentlemen of quality. This must certainly be due in fact to your own fortunate heritage in the wearing o' the green?...
