1st Bn Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment

FEROZESHAH PARADE 1961

The Ferozeshah Parade was held on the 15th December 1961, and in spite of the very cold weather, the sun shone and the Regiment were delighted to welcome the many friends who attended. The salute was taken by the Colonel of the Regiment and the parade was generally accepted as having been a great success. In the evening the Sergeants Mess gave the traditional Ferozeshah ball and at Midnight the Ceremony of handing the colours back to the Officers took place.
