  4. 1st Bn is based at Catterick, with a rumour of getting moved to Tidworth in 2015, and a wee tour later in this year, F Company are based in Wellington Brks
     
  5. Lazy cnut
     
  6. From wiki - "The Scots Guards is ranked as the third regiment in the Guards Division; as such, Scots Guardsmen can be recognised by having the buttons on their tunics spaced in threes."

    - A prime example of why the regimental system is a load of pish.

  9. Weren't they actually the first... but because they were a Cromwellian mob, they got disbanded at the time of the restoration? On that basis, they have my vote.
     
  10. Sorry :p

    Correctomundo
     
  11. Over 350 years of history - celebrated by buttons spaced in threes - nice!
     
  12. And some of the first VC winners
     
  13. Still - celebrated with buttons spaced in threes.
