This Regiment is unique and has come under threat in the latest round of defence cuts. This Regiment is named after Waterloo Hero The Duke of Wellington himself and the current Duke is still the Regiment's deputy Colonel in Chief today. The only Regiment with a non Royal as it's C in C and the only Regiment in the whole of the British Army to carry Four Colours on parade.
If this Regiment were to go it would be a huge loss to the Army as a whole due to the Regiments unique history and a massive loss to the People of Yorkshire, the regiments home.
This petition seeks to demonstrate the strength of feeling and urges the Government to re consider.
