Tenth Anniversary Colours Parade – 18 June

 

A great day was enjoyed by all members of the regimental family on Saturday 18 June at Imphal Barracks in York.

The parade included the ceremonial, ‘handing over of the Honorary Colours’ which is biennial event when the Colours are transferred between serving battalions for safe keeping.

 The salute was taken by the Chief of Defence Staff, General Sir Nicholas Houghton, GCB CBE ADC Gen, a yorkshireman from Otley, who was the first Colonel of the Regiment and formerly a Green Howard.  He will soon handover responsibility as CDS after a long and distinguished service career.

Members of the recently relaunched Yorkshire Regiment Association also marched past with their new standards, accompanied by former members of three famous Yorkshire regiments that merged in 2006 to form The Yorkshire Regiment; The Prince of Wales’s Own Regiment of Yorkshire, The Green Howards and The Duke of Wellington’s Regiment. 

A tenth anniversary, family fun-day and BBQ was held after the formality of the Colours Parade for serving personnel, their families and former members of the Regiment.

 

You can download a copy of the tenth anniversary brochure here.
