Minden Day 2017

August 1, 2017 in United Kingdom

Minden Day is observed on August 01, 2017. Minden Day is a regimental anniversary celebrated by certain units of the British Army. It commemorates the participation of the forerunners of the regiments in the Battle of Minden on that date in 1759. The celebration of the day involves the wearing of "Minden Roses" on the regimental head dress, and, in the case of the infantry regiments, the decoration of the regimental colours with garlands of roses. This recalls that the regiments wore wild roses at the battle that they had plucked from the hedgerows as they advanced to engage the enemy. (With material from: Wikipedia)
