    The tiger relates to the tiger on the cap badge of the old Royal Hampshire Regt (below a Hampshire rose), one of the regiments that was compressed into the PWRR. The tiger was awarded for long service in India; so also the Leicestershire Regt who also called themselves the Tigers; and no doubt others.
     
  4. It was great to see the large turnout letting the lads to know they are well supported by the public.
