Dogs (a military term)

.

The 17th Lancers or Duke of Cambridge’s Own Lancers. The crest of this famous cavalry regiment is a Death’s Head and Cross-bones, OR GLORY, whence the acrostic Death Or Glory (D.O.G.).

The Spartan injunction, when the young soldier was presented with his shield, was, “With this, or On this,” which meant the same thing.
