The Regimental Rosette was instituted by Colonel David Woodd in 2012. It is intended to recognise those who support or provide a service to The King’s Royal Hussars, the Regimental Association, or the clubs of predecessor regiments, through their individual personal endeavour or contribution. Service in the Regiment or in one of the antecedent regiments is not a requirement, but any person who is in receipt of a MOD salary is not normally eligible.
The Regimental Rosette may be worn on any occasion but it is intended that it would be worn at a Regimental function, whether or not medals are worn. Importantly, the Regimental Rosette is to be presented in front of their peers. The first Rosettes were presented by the Colonel of the Regiment to those recipients who attended Cavalry Memorial in May 2013.
