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.

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!
