This is where it all started for the new Regiment.

The Royal Green Jackets.

Along came the order which would shape 50 years of Military history and might, Army order 69/1965 was to shape so many, boys to men, action in theatre and sacrifice under the Crown (lives lost), but more importantly a new Regiment.

A Regiment which had taken forward old traditions from its forfathers a new tapestry.

With a dictated order and a sweep of ink, out went ,The Green Jackets Brigade and in came The Royal Green Jackets at a pace that would set standards that many would find hard to keep up with, not just in stride alone.
