well its 1 of these so called super regiments..royal welch fuseboxs and royal reg of wales,the hackle coming from the fuseboxs,capbadge is rrw,come 1st march big thing going on in cardiff,new colours given by charles etc,ive got my film ready so ill get pics.im ex rrw so i dont know what the hackle means,hope it not for running away. http://www.rwfnet.co.uk/
ok ,the 3 feathers u see is the old capbadge of the royal reiment of wales,the green backing is beacuse they served about lord nelsons flagship as marines,the white hackle is what the royal welch fuilsers had,now these two regiments are coming togther,hence this new stuff....the feather/hackle cant just be a welsh thing,the rrf reg also have 1,supposed to have been dipped in blood or somthing cause they red on top,maybe its a fusiler thing?
Sorry, looks like my memory was wrong on the RRF hackle, authough the the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers (now part of the RRF) fought at Brandywine (as did the 23rd of foot). It seems that official line is that the red is in fact French blood from St. Lucia in 1778 - much more acceptable today!
