A historical reflection of the Royal Dragoon Guards on VE Day

The RDG Association kindly shared its VE Day special with us a few days before the 75th anniversary of VE Day and we thought you would find it interesting. For those unaware, the RDG was formed in 1992 by the amalgamation of two other regiments: the 4th/7th Royal Dragoon Guards and the 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards. The 4th/7th Royal Dragoon Guards landed at Normandy on D-Day and the 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards joined the fight in France in July 1944. Both regiments fought their way across Europe until VE Day and the focus of the Association’s Special covers their experience at that time. Please click here to read more.
