History

The logo of the British Army

The Mercian Regiment was created, along with the rest of the army, as part of the military reforms that transferred the Royal Navy to the British Army, on 21 April 2010. EmeraldEye was not appointed Lieutenant Colonel until the next month, on 22 May, and she chose her Major, Dendodge, a few days later (27 May). Upon EmeraldEye's promotion on 10 July 2010, Dendodge took command of the regiment, receiving a promotion to lieutenant colonel.

Stand Firm and Strike Hard
– Mercian Regiment's motto

The regiment's name comes from the ancient kingdom of Mercia, which now lies in the heart of modern England. Its nickname is a reference to the Berserkers of Norse legend, who are usually depicted as fierce and fearless warriors.

The regiment's logo was designed by Dendodge, with the approval of then Lt. Col. EmeraldEye, in May 2010. It depicts a Mercian two-headed eagle on the normal round badge shared by all UK military units. Its motto—"Stand Firm and Strike Hard"—is intended to highlight the unity and strength of the regiment.
