The Minden Rose
The Minden Rose
The Minden Rose pub on the corner of Western Way and Newmarket road Bury St.Edmunds Suffolk. 12th Foot, later the Suffolk Regiment and now the 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment, formed part of a force which, with the Prussian Army, campaigned against the French on the continent during the Seven Years War. The Battle of Minden was the culminating and only major battle of the campaign in 1759. The 12th Foot was the senior of the British battalions and was therefore on the right of the line. In the space of a few hours on 1st August, against all odds and following a daring charge, the British defeated the French troops. As the infantry passed through the rose gardens on the morning of the battle, the soldiers picked roses which they fastened to their hats. In honour of this battle, the 1st Battalion continues the custom of wearing red and yellow roses in the head-dress on the anniversary of Minden Day. For close up of the sign see Link
