The Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment

(Berkshire & Wiltshire)

The sun had set beyond yon hill, Across the dreary moor, When weary and lame, a boy there came, Up to the farmer's door, "Can you tell me whe'ere I be, And one that will me employ," To plough and sow, to reap and mow, And be a farmer's boy, And be a farmer's boy?

The Regiment

The Regimental Sergeant Major

 The REGIMENTAL SERGEANT MAJOR (RSM) is the senior Warrant officer and enlisted man in the Battalion, and as such holds an important position of authority within the Regimental organization. To many young soldiers within any Infantry Battalion the 'R.S.M.' was somebody to be avoided at all costs, and it appeared to many a soldier that all 'R.S.M.s' are born old.
