Whenever I think of it I try and find out if there is a mascot or an emblem or something that means something to the fellows who have been deployed.
When the wife of a 7RAR fellow contacted me, I asked her if the unit had a mascot.
This is what she said "7RAR's mascot is a pig, in any form apparently, even in a top hat. Just think of Porky the Pig and you're on the right track."
Now how on earth does a proud Army Unit come about to adopt a PIG as a mascot. Seriously, a pig of all things.
Why are we called the Pigs?
One more happy customer! This one for Stephanie's quilt. This email came to me from his wife but Stephanie will be hearing from him separately.
