    Minden Day 1 August

    This battle has always fascinated me as an example of just how tough the British Infantry can be.

    Infantry attacking masses of cavalry...madness.

    But a great success

    The following regiments wear The Rose today in honor of their participation:

    Royal Artillery
    12th of Foot (Suffolk Regiment), now part of The Royal Anglian Regiment
    20th Foot (Lancashire Fusiliers), now part of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers
    23rd Foot (Royal Welch Fusiliers), now the 1st Battalion, The Royal Welsh (Royal Welch Fusiliers)
    25th Foot (King's Own Scottish Borderers), now The Royal Scots Borderers (1st Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland)
    37th Foot (Royal Hampshire Regiment), now part of the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment
    51st Foot (King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry), now part of The Rifles

    “We had been hopelessly labouring to plough waste lands; to make nationality grow in a place full of the certainty of God… Among the tribes our creed could be only like the desert grass – a beautiful swift seeming of spring; which, after a day’s heat, fell dusty.”

    Trust gets you killed, love gets you hurt, and being REAL gets you hated.
