1. Household Cavalry and Royal Armoured Corps Memorial
Inscription.
In Memory of Those Serving in the Household Cavalry Armoured Corps Who Have Died on Operations Since 1945
Take these men as your example.
Like them remember
That prosperity can only be for the free,
Who alone have the courage to defend it.
