: I think you are not far wrong Chris, they were most happy to take the hat badge with out any hesitation. I have learned from a conversation I had with someone who was there at the time that at the conference held at the start of the amalgamation talks that the Queens were walked over by the Hampshire colonels and sat there and just took it. They seemed unable to drop the 'gentleman' that was within all or most of our officers.
: Well The Queen's Regiment will live on for some time yet, not so the Hampshires.
I was told that when the PWRR was formed all pictures etc from our past was burned on a huge bon fire
