The Clifton cadet is clearly wearing the QRL badge - no red backing though.

I suspect that no Direct Entry QRL officer has ever come from the Midlands!

How bizzare but clearly Mike was correct - whatever next Brighton College CCF could rebadge to the Yorkshire Regiment and how about Nottingham High School rebadging to the Royal Regiment of Scotland !

I can only assume that a current or recent contingent commander served with QRL at some time ??

It's nothingt o do with Geography but all to do with where the Regt draws its Officers from. How many Welsh Officers have you met in the QDG?

The Cori Tap is about 100m from my house. It's a very dangerous place (for those who don't know, it is a famous cider pub in Clifton).

From what the OC said, they at some point in the recent past had a QRL attachment who sorted it for them.

Why not?

Their regimental museum is at Belvoir Castle, in Leicestershire. There are rather a lot of aristocratic families in the area, including the Duke of Rutland who, as far as I know, still lives at Belvoir.

Or am I missing the point?

Cheers

William

The museum has recently moved to Thoresby not far from Worksop/Ollerton in Nottinghamshire (and a very good museum it is too).

Should take OC14 about 10 minutes to walk there from his house!
