1st Bn, Duke of Edinburgh?s Royal Regiment - A colour photograph showing a sight rarely seen by soldiers from the Regiment who never reached the Sergeants' Mess. On the day of a Ferozeshah Parade at the stroke of midnight the Colours would ceremoniously be handed back to the officers. Here we see WO1 (RSM) Venus in 1980 when the battalion was stationed in Osnabruck, West Germany, taking charge of the Regimental Colour prior to handing it back to the officers. The Queen's Colour is being carried at the slope by Colour sergeant Mortimer, and would be handed over shortly afterwards. The Drum Major who remains at the salute is Drum Major Harrill. This tradition was jealously guarded during the Regiment?s existence and old comrades from the Regiment still meet on December 21 each year in Wiltshire to commemorate this Battle Honour and to honour the men of the 62nd Foot who fought at Ferozeshah.

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!
