Re: Robert Taylor Koehler No. 0412

Before Christmas I was discussing with my first TA Company Commander my petition for a heraldic badge. He suggested a Pascal Lamb as a nod to the The Queen's Royal Surrey Regiment (aka The Mutton Lancers) which was one of founding Regiments of The Queen's Regiment (now in turn part of the PWRR).
