Kumaon Regiment has its glorious past, has almost regale history behind it. what fascinated me the most was its insignia:
A demi-rampant lion holding a cross. The demi-rampant lion is part of the arms of the Russel family, whose ancestor had started the body of troops now formed into the Kumaon Regiment. Eventually, when the folks were chartered officially to be called Kumaon Regiment,they debated to keep the crown (Nizam’s times ancestry) but balancing the same was concern.
the best part is that in Indian Army,details are dealt with urgency.
Today’s change is yester year’s mark.
