Staffordshire Regiment - Opinions

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What are peoples views on the staffords?

    As i live close to birmingham i think they are one of my closest infantry regiments?

    Good lads the old and bold will remember the battle of Waterloo Bks Munster in the early 80s :wink:
     
  3. I don't think they'll be in existence for much longer. Will be merged with Cheshires and WFRS to form a "Mercian" Battalion. Cue double headed shitehawks all round if the old TA badge is revived.

    Otherwise, a good County regiment with a proud tradition. That's why Bliar had to destroy them.

  4. Never a true'r word spoken

    sadly.....
     
  5. The one's ive met have been good lads, shame about the Accent.
     
  6. Awsome bunch. Did a course with them a while back, nothing but good things to say.
     
  7. The Staffords are a top outfit with brilliant soldiers and I believe the best mascott.

    It is true that they are changing to the Mercians (3 Mercian) I think in October 2007 (sorry if I am wrong).

    Join them whilst you can still be capped a Stafford!

    Good Luck :D
     
  8. So if you join and enlist before they change to Mercian you retain your cap badge and being known as a stafford is that what your saying??

    Dont they change there berets and cap badges when they change to mercian?
     
  9. No, you will, like all rebadge but you will always be (in your heart and heritage) a Stafford!
