In 1899 the 1st battalion left gibraltar, which they had been stationed for the last two years for service in South Africa, they were withdrawn in 1901 (to Ireland IIRC), the 2nd battalion arrived in South Africa in 1900 and were withdrawn to England in 1902

cheers

Hi Mossy

Do you wish to know about the Manchester Regiment or just info on your superb jacket.

The Manchester Regiment was amalglamated with the Kings Liverpool Regiment in1958

and was renamed The 1st Battalion The Kings Regiment. I served with this regiment for 25 years.

The club has my email address if you would like me to find out about the jacket please email me the photo

and i will go to the regimentil museum,and i will need your email as the answer will be a long one.

Eric

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
