1st Bn Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment

(Berkshire and Wiltshire)

 

The Ferozeshah Parade
The Ferozeshah Parade which had been inherited from the Wiltshire Regiment was commemorated in some form or other throughout the life of the 1st Battalion Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment. Their time in Catterick with the 24th Air Mobile Brigade was no exception with two excellent parades taking place in 1991 and 1993. The parade in 1993 was the last parade for the D.E.R.R. although the RGBW have carried it over when operations allow.
