This seems to me to be something of a vexed issue and not of any real interest outside this particular Regiment. I am tasked to research for an essay on the Yeomanry in general and this is a problem and I wonder if anyone can help. Thus far I have it between C and Y Sqns. Y does appear to have a long lineage but C is by far the more blue blooded in origin and an equally long background. I am acquainted with the Yeomanry, (RY) and this sort of thing, including who raised them, where and when does exercise them. Can anyone enlighten me?
