To mark Remembrance as a combined Regiment and Association we have paraded in Birmingham for many years. Our connection to the city remains important and strong, and Birmingham lies at the heart of a significant recruiting area.
Welcome to the home page of the QRH Podcast – Churchill Chat. The podcast gives news and views from the Regiment, interviews with serving or former Hussars and a round up from Home Headquarters and the Troops around the UK.
You can use this player to listen or it is also available via Spotify and iTunes
Please get in touch if there is anyone or anything you would like to hear on the Pod.
(The following is an extract from the Gov.UK website)
The Veterans’ recognition scheme has a 2-phase rollout. Phase 1 is complete; with Service leavers receiving a recognition card as part of the discharge process.
Phase 2 is to extend the scheme to existing veterans so that they can more quickly, easily and securely prove they served in the UK Armed Forces so they can access the services they need.
We had hoped to have this in place by the end of 2019, but due to the requirement to future-proof the scheme so that veterans can access a wider range of benefits, the need to safeguard against fraudulent use means, this process will take longer.
Information on how to apply will be released closer to the launch date.
Due to the cancellation of the parade, HQ RAC have put together a Podcast version of the Cavalry Memorial Service together with an e-Order of Service for Sunday 3rd May 2020.
The link to the Podcast is as follows: https://youtu.be/7zFBuarqXbE
The idea is for people to follow the link from 1055hrs with the Service starting at 1100hrs. (Noting that, although it will be bespoke, it will be pre-recorded so timing isn’t critical!).
The e-Order of Service for people to follow can be found below:
From the President of the Combined Cavalry Old Comrades Association:
“As you will all be aware, given current restrictions on movement and gatherings, it has not been possible to hold the Combined Cavalry Old Comrades Association’s normal Parade and Service on the Anniversary of the Unveiling and Dedication of the Cavalry Memorial. This electronic version of the Service is presented in the hope that you may wish ‘virtually’ to join together in memory of our comrades in the Cavalry who have given their lives in the service of their Country. The recording will be live from 1055 with incidental music. The actual Service will begin at 11 AM”.Lieutenant-General Sir William Rollo KCB, CBE
This year’s Grand Military Gold Cup, will be held on Fri 6 Mar 20 at Sandown Park Racecourse.
