GeneralRegiment names. PinmemberLeslie Nielsen 15157615-Jul-13 22:40 
Does anyone know how regiment names are assigned? The US 7th cavalry for example makes a bit of sense as it's possible there might have been six others and a few more. That logic kind of breaks down when you have regiments (forgive the liberty I'm taking) called the Kings Infantry 522nd Foot. The 22nd SAS as far as I know was never preceded by 21 others. Is there a method they use in naming regiments? I don't know if there are reasons that explain why regiments are known by the names they have?
 
633 Squadron RAF. Why 633 and not 738 or 203423?
If there is one thing more dangerous than getting between a bear and her cubs it's getting between my wife and her chocolate.
