Default Question - KRH

Hi Guys,

Why would an officer in the King's Royal Hussars where a KRH rank slide and a RSDG beret badge?

Perhaps he served in a KRH Battle Group in Iraq or Afghanistan. For years the Army has been so understrength that as each armoured or infantry unit took its turn on deployment one of its sub-units came from another regiment. Parent cap badges were retained but at least one Regimental item of uniform was that of the unit being supported as a unifying mark.

Default Beret

Mick,

Why would an officer from the RSDG be wearing an KRH beret and rank slides ???. Because he is attached to the KRH

Hi Tony,

I would have thought an attached officer would have worn his own insignia on the rank slide?

He is wearing the rank badge of the unit in which he is exercising command.

If you have a copy or access to the KRH issue of the Regiment magazine,its clearly illustrated. Theres an image of an attached RAF officer,red trousers,brown jumper and grey/blue cap looks ..... well I'll let you form an opinion.
