1st Bn Duke of Edinburghs Royal Regiment

(Berkshire & Wiltshire)

COMMEMORATION PARADE, CLIFTON BARRACKS, MINDEN, 21st December 1967
The Battle of Ferozeshah was commemorated each year by the Battalion in Minden. All those who took part will have a clear memory of the bitter German Winters, and not without a passing thought that December 21st was not a clever time to hold a battle or a parade. Nevertheless tradition is tradition !

The following photographs cover some of the parades, and more will follow in the passage of time.
