The Club was formed in 1943 by Col. E.H. St. Maur Toope, MM.
from members of the Cadet Battalion, 42nd Royal Tank Regiment, located in the borough of Battersea.
In 1948 the name was changed to Battersea Ironsides
and the Club formally opened to other than RTR Cadets.
The club colours originate from the RTR shoulder flash
and motto “Through mud and blood to the green fields beyond”, brown, green and red.
White has been added and brown interpreted as black for fashion reasons.
The club helmet and crossed lances hark back to Cromwell’s parliamentarian troops, the Ironsides.
