So the more recent surrenders by RM will definately not count as battle honours then? Nice to celebrate the 25 anniversary of surrendering down south by doing it again in the Persian Gulf - well done Royal.
3 PARA mortars, say no more.That is was actually the Devon and Dorsets that did Pegasus bridge.On the invasion of Iraq it was 3 CDO that did all the graft(I was QDG and we were attached to 3 cdo) .16AA did sod all. They wear maroon t-shirts out on the lash all the time. The royals are better soldiers, tyhat is coming from a member of the army that has served with both on op tours.The RM were a pleasure to serve with because they saw us as equals.
