Royal Welsh

The Royal Welsh (R WELSH) (Welsh Y Cymry Brenhinol) is one of the new large infantry regiments of the British Army. Its formation was announced on 16 December 2004 by Geoff Hoon and General Sir Mike Jackson as part of the restructuring of the infantry and it was actually formed on St David's Day, 1 March 2006. The 2nd Battalion, The Royal Welsh (Royal Regiment of Wales), is to be scrapped as part of the Army 2020 defence review. After the restructuring and reorganisation of the army in 2006, the Royal Welsh is one of three regiments to trace its lineage and recruits primarily from Wales.

Famous quotes containing the words welsh and/or royal:

    Thy tongue
    Makes Welsh as sweet as ditties highly penned,
    Sung by a fair queen in a summer’s bower,
    With ravishing division, to her lute.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Because humans are not alone in exhibiting such behavior—bees stockpile royal jelly, birds feather their nests, mice shred paper—it’s possible that a pregnant woman who scrubs her house from floor to ceiling [just before her baby is born] is responding to a biological imperative . . . . Of course there are those who believe that . . . the burst of energy that propels a pregnant woman to clean her house is a perfectly natural response to their mother’s impending visit.
    Mary Arrigo (20th century)
