Am i missing something here??

I'm pretty sure the Yorkshire regiment is causing mayhem, along with the RIFLES (plus the other county/national units) etc.

Besides which, at the end of the day, they are tankies - the amount of chaps in the 13th/18th Hussars who used to mince around in womens tights on ex!!!!!

UP THE YORKSHIRE REGIMENT!!!!!!

What I found unnerving was how many uncommon names there were on the B Sqn LD role of honour at the end which were the names of people who were B Sqn 15/19H during my day. Not Smith, Jones, Robinson either, but names I have never heard outside of 15/19H.

Are the Guards (see sweat-shirts in the vids. did any 13/18H squadron nicknames get carried forward to LD or are they all former 15/19H names) entirely populated by the sons of the people I served with?

It would appear mate that there are still some peope around who think the 13/18th still exsists under the name LD and that the 15/19th faded away, I wonder if they escaped from Netley before it closed down.

in South Yorkshire, most people have adopted the Light Dragoons, (a great regiment) rather than cling to the "old" 13th/18th. They have also adopted the RDG.

strangely though, despite the massive publicity of the Yorkshire Regiment, most people still cling to GH/DWR/PWO- although this amalgamation is relatively recent, and will surely change in time.

Farkin' 'ell, that was a PM and a half!!!

IIRC Coxby was my first CO in Omagh, 1976, in which case I must have stood in his office almost exactly 32 years ago. That said, apart from him and the RSM (whom I bumped into in 1996) visiting us out in the field in West Tyrone somewhere, our paths never crossed before he moved on.

I shall, however, pass your PM around a number of my colleagues (one of whom, posting in this thread, is still serving) and I am sure the word will get out in time for anyone who needs to know.

GeordieHussar: check your e-mail.

Alien I totally agree the names on the roll of honour brought back long lasting memories of people who were in when we served I presume with the names that appeared they are sons of their namesakes it can`t be coincidence.
Also recieved your E Mail ref CR. Dad being my CO in Omagh as you well know, really bad news.
