It comprised the Regimental Recruiting Team which was deployed to the Regimental Counties from Minden, West Germany from April to August (Lieutenant T M A Daly, Sergeant D R Head and L/Corporals I G Backhouse, M A Browne and T J Hoare) and a reinforcement group which deployed from Minden on 14Sep67 to join them for the KAPE tour 24Sep-07Oct. 27 Army Youth Team (Wiltshire) which was manned by DERR personnel on 2 year postings (Lieutenant R C Vaughan-Payne, Sergeant M Green, and L/Corporals Davidson, M Kerr and Nicholls) and based in Le Marchant Barracks, Devizes, was attached to the KAPE Team for the duration of the tour. Sergeant M Mortimer was the Wessex Brigade Recruiter (DERR) based in Wiltshire who also joined the KAPE Team. Front row kneeling, left to right are Private P J Cuss, Private S P Riddell, Private K A Heath, L/Corporal T J Hoare, L/Corporal M A Browne, Sergeant M Mortimer, Sergeant D R Head, Private K A Bousfield, L/Corporal M A Devonshire, Private I J Ball, Private L W Stretch Rear row standing, left to right, are Corporal D A Bailey, Corporal D O Morgan, L/Corporal J C Long, Lieutenant R C Vaughan-Payne, Lieutenant T M A Daly (OC), L/Corporal I G Backhouse, Private Starsmere Vehicles, left to right: Truck 3/4 ton GS Cargo from the Battalion FV432 Armoured Personnel Carrier on loan to the RRT from the Infantry Demonstration Battalion at The School of Infantry Trucks 1/4 ton GS Cargo x2 on loan to the RRT from a Southern Command pool. Truck 3 ton GS Cargo from the Battalion Truck 1/4 ton GS Fitted For Radio from the Battalion (Note: these were all operational vehicles but had been 'bulled' and regimentally identified with badges and sign boards for KAPE purposes. The standard vehicle colour then was deep bronze green which polished well; drab olive green and then disrupted pattern camouflage was not generally adopted until the early 1970s. The trucks from the Battalion were in the normal 'exhausted' condition caused by the BAOR Cold War training programme and had ended a 2 week exercise only 5 days before starting the drive to the Channel for the crossing to England, so had required considerable tender loving care to achieve the state shown; they were also left hand drive which caused some bemusement in the towns and villages of Berkshire and Wiltshire. The DERR badges on the vehicles were made by apprentices at 27 Command Workshop REME at Warminster by copying the badge 'borrowed' from the Commanding Officer's staff car in Germany while he was on leave!

66th Regiment - A collection of five photographs, one drawing and a Word Document connected with Captain Percy Charles Heath who was killed at the Battle of Maiwand in 1879. He served in the 15th Native Infantry but was seconded to act as Brigade Major to his Father-in-Law, General Burrows; because of illness he remained in Kandahar when General Burrows marched towards Maiwand and his place on General Burrows' staff was taken by Captain William McMath of the 66th Regiment. Captain Heath recovered in time to catch up the Army before the Battle in which he was killed. The five photos are one of him, one possibly of the hoof of his horse turned into an inkwell, one of him and his wife Isabella, one of his wife and the daughter Adria whom he apparently never saw and one probably of General Burrows with his grand-daughter Adria. The drawing is a cartoon by General Burrows and the set of notes are details explaining much of this written by Captain Heath's great grandson, Chris Heath, who supplied all these objects and lives in Canada.
