Greetings to all Queensmen, past and present on this the anniversary of the Allied landings at Salerno, this day in 1943. Salerno Day (9th September 1943) Two Queen's Brigades comprising six territorial battalions of the Regiment fought at Salerno. The unique historical significance of this event, coupled with the fact that the Territorials remained an integral part of the Regiment, demanded that this battle should be commemorated by a regimental anniversary. This anniversary continued to be celebrated throughout the life of The Queen's Regiment. When the amalgamation with The Royal Hampshire Regiment took place in 1992, it was agreed that Salerno Day would be the Regimental Day of The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment. This was because in addition to the six territorial battalions of the Queen's there was a Hampshire Brigade fighting side by side.
