Cap Badge of the 9th/12th Royal Lancers..

The 9th/12th Royal Lancers (Prince of Wales's) was a cavalry regiment of the British Army, formed in 1960 by the amalgamation of the 9th Queen's Royal Lancers and the 12th Royal Lancers.. In the later years of its existence the regiment served as a formation reconnaissance regiment, equipped with the Combat Vehicle Reconnaissance (Tracked) family of vehicles and was attached to the 7th Armoured Brigade, the Desert Rats..D Squadron deployed to the Middle East in 1991 on Operation Granby to provide Battle Casualty Replacements..

"Here on the 11 September 1960, 9th/12th Royal Lancers (Prince of Wales's) was formed by the 9th Queen’s Royal Lancers and the 12th Royal Lancers (Prince of Wales's) coming together before God.. It is not the beginning but the continuing of the same until it be thoroughly finished, which yieldeth the true glory"..Colonel-in-Chief 2003–2015: HRH Prince Andrew, The Duke of York, KCVO, ADC

Samantha Lewthwaite was born to parents Andrew & Elizabeth Christine (née Allen) Lewthwaite in Banbridge, County Down in 1983.. Her father is a former British Army soldier who served in the 9th/12th Royal Lancers and had met her mother while he was stationed in Northern Ireland in the 1970s..Lewthwaite, the widow of 7/7 London terrorist bomber Germaine Lindsay, is accused of causing the deaths of more than 400 people, and is the subject of an Interpol Red Notice..

Mons Moy is the weekend that the regiment, both serving and old comrades, remember the fallen of all conflicts.. Where commitments allow, it falls between 28 August and 7 September.. On 28 August 1914 at Moy, the 12th Royal Lancers (Prince of Wales's) successfully charged against the German Guard Dragoons - Olympus Mons stands about two and a half times as tall as Mount Everest's height above sea level..As a shield volcano, Olympus Mons resembles the shape of the large vol-canoes making up the Hawaiian Islands.."O Eternal God, grant to us, thy servants of the 9th/12th Royal Lancers, strength, guidance, courage, and steadfast Faith, that we may ever serve thee truly; and finally by thy mercy attain everlasting glory, through Jesus Christ our Lord – Amen"..., coincidence and fate figure largely in our lives..Tomorrow will be like today, and the day after tomorrow will be like the day before yesterday.. I see your remaining days as a tedious collection of hours full of useless vanities.. You will think no new thoughts.. You will forget what little you have known..Older you will become, but not wiser...
