QOR :The Queen's Own

cus10030.jpg (88346 bytes)The Queen's Own came out of what were called the sedentary militia. "They were not armed, uniformed, paid or trained. On one day a year, initially on June 4, the birthday of King George III, and later on April 23, St. George's Day, they mustered, went through a few drill movements, gave three cheers for the Queen, and then proceeded, at the Commanding Officer's expense, to some really serious drinking."

After being involved in a number of domestic skirmishes they became an active regiment later on, were involved in the First and Second World Wars.
