why do Welsh soldiers wear a leek in their hat badge

Blog Posted:3/1/2013 12:41:00 PM
Why do the Welsh soldiers wear a badge of a leek in the hats?

because St. David ordered his soldiers to wear the leek on their helmets in a battle against the d pagan Saxon invaders of Britain. The battle itself is also said to have taken place in a field full of leeks.
They wore the leek to identify themelves as Welsh.

Every St Davids Day the youngest soldier of a Welsh regiment, has a drum roll whilst he eats a leek

Bet his girl friend loves his breath  lol

Nowadays we wear the daffodil but some people still  wear the leek and eat them later.  i prefer them in Leek and Potato  Soup.  yummy

    Love leek and potatoes soup, my friend another David was named after the saint (don't know why he's from Lancashire) so they were all wishing him a happy St D day, I asked him what her knew and he knew nothing , I filled him in with info from all my soup buddies, he thought I was so clever but I had to admit where my info came from xx

    Per my info, the other "team" laughed so much that the Welsh easily overpowered them that day... Lol... I just love these old stories and could well imagine some of the antics they got up to. I love leek and potato pie with cheese sauce... My one sister-in-law is Welsh and I di have a soft spot for that clan.... LOve, Su
