- The problem with amalgamation is that with all this shuffling a card gets dropped.
In 1881 the 89th (Princess Victoria's) and the 87th Irish Fusiliers amalgamated and formed the 2nd Btn Princess Victoria's (Royal Irish Fusiliers). In 1921 the become
the Royal Irish Fusiliers (Princess Victoria's). then linked with the Inniskilling Fusiliers for 13 years before getting a divorce, only to come together again some 60
years later with the Royal Ulster Rifles to form the 3rd Btn Royal Irish Rangers (27 (Inniskilling) 83rd 87th Uslter Defence Reg't) Now know today as the Royal Irish
Reg't.. Way back there though after the second shuffle The 89th Reg't lost its association with anyone. The lineage is there, but as you can see with the 3rd Btn RIR
they have acknowledged the 27th 83rd and 87th. I am currently compiling a list of all Reg't that amalgamated and amalgated and amalgamated (I think I got them all) to
make up the Royal Irish Reg't. It's getting long!
Same thing happened here in Canada and many Militia lost some hard earned battle honours!
