Ah! the Cheshires - 22nd of Foot
Used to use these numbers when calling out at Tombola in Cyprus (1955)
24th The Taffys
2nd Afghanistan War 1878-80
The old 66th Regt of Foot (Berkshires) were there. Used to visit their memorial in the Forbury Gardens, Reading when I was a lad living in Reading during the WW2. It's in the shape of a rather large Lion on a plinth.
Useless info I know.
