"Westminster Dragoons: join the finest TA Unit in London"

#4
A good mate of mine transferred to them; I had a few beers in their mess on a number of occasions.

Overall, they were a good bunch of blokes with an interesting role.

That was a few years ago, mind. I think they still had horses, breastplates and lances.

V!

particular . :lol:

When it says 'finest' unit, rather like a good bottle of wine. After all, they are cavalry. And the average trooper's age was at one time n-n-n-n-n-ninety five :)

No, it isn't. Neither the WDs nor their parent unit have anything to do with the running of the site. Says so on the home page.

Quite right. The WDs are the "finest" in the sense that they cav and so are best appreciated when accompanied by a haze of port, cigar smoke and ripe cheese.

Although they can hardly trump 21, they are plainly "finer" in the warry sense than the HAC, inasmuch as the WDs have a recent warfighting record.

Finally, regarding this photo:

No one in that pic is a WD. The perils of copyright infringement. Be warned!

As you "Chaps" roll pass in your "Clanks" spare a thought for the poor foot slogger!

And watch that BBQ set on the rear deck must be a fire risk.......


When the Battle ended all that was left was a
Man with a Rifle and Bayonet!
