Goodbye to the Black Watch & ' KINGS '
- From: "John Harris" <jharris@...>
A sad day for a proud Regiment.
Say Goodbye to another proud regiment
The 8th or King's Regiment of Foot which was the KING's REGIMENT
On 1st July will be known as The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment
The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment
(King's, Lancashire and Border)
The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment (King's, Lancashire and Border) will form
from the King's Regiment, the King's Own Royal Border Regiment, and the
Queen's Lancashire Regiment on 1st July 2006.
As part of this reorganisation, almost all Infantry regiments would become
'large regiments' of two or more regular battalions and a TA battalion.
This is known as the 'Future Infantry Structure', (FIS) for short.
