Yeomanry in Afganistan

#1
Hi Guys,

Cheers for all your replies to my Telic thread. Now I`d really like to know about the Yeomanry in Afganistan.

Any Yeoman out there who`ve done a tour in Afgan, I`d really like to hear from you.

Also anything related to our Proud Regiments role in this Campaign.

Would it be possible - as part of this thread - for someone to post a potted history of every single Yeomanry Regiment and for this to descend into an argument about seniority and the last time the Yeomanry fought a war?

Or has this already been done?

Nah. Let's give it a go.

The North Staffordshire Mounted Regiment of Cats. First raised by Earl Jugnuts in 1302 for the suppression of the Grimley Starvation Riots, the Cats have since seen service in ...
TB, there is a thing called OPSEC. It stops us talking about stuff that is may - or may not - happen. So wait until 2010 and buy the book.

Why do you do apostrophes in that odd manner? Are you using a non-UK keyboard? An Arabic, Pashto or Persian one?

Come on: own up, Johnny Afghan.

TB, hope the quote below answers your question!

In 2029 the Purple Emperor's Yeomanry took the planet Afghanistania after a surprise attack using their drop ships and combat pedalos. This attack was nearly called off after an eronneous report that the Afghanistanianians were actually armed.

At roughly the same time the 30th Division of the Honorable Artillery Company, as the HAC had been renamed when one their troopers, an American born billionaire bought them out in 2099, were undergoing specialist Selection training before deploying out of role as ball organisers on the planet Zrg

Don't you have to have done the all arms commando course to get combat pedalos? I thought the PEY weren't getting re-roled until 2046 when FAS(TA) finally gets announced :?:

Never mind seniority; of course we are the oldest regiment, notwithstanding taking the *ahem* wrong side in the Mars Attacks Invasion
