A warm welcome to Wiltshire for the Royal Dragoon Guards who have relocated from Catterick to Warminster, replacing the Yorkshire regiment which has been stationed in the town for the past 10 years.
The Royal Dragoon Guards (RDG) is a cavalry regiment of the British Army. It was formed in 1992 by the amalgamation of two other regiments. The Royal Dragoon Guards carries the history of other regiments: the 4th Royal Irish Dragoon Guards, the 5th Dragoon Guards, the 7th Dragoon Guards and the 6th Inniskilling Dragoons. All four were raised between 1685 and 1689, when James II and William of Orange fought for the English throne.
That's a pretty impressive history.
