XX 1LF - Norton Barracks, Worcester
IP: 90.156.104.130


Hi All,

i have recently been reviewing the history of Norton barracks, Worcester to trace any detail relating to XX 1 LF presence there in 1964. After some searching I stumbled upon a photo of the following officers; Lt Lister, Lt Carter alongside the late CO Lt Col James Wilson KBE, MC outside what I believe to be BHQ, Norton Barracks? The photo portrayed the CO receiving a braided fruit loaf from none other than former Dutch International footballer Abe Lenstra during the Bn march back from BAOR to Worcester in 1964. I have a few questions purely for personal interest. 1) Can anyone remember this event and do we have the location right? 2) Both officers are in the old green combats and possibly boots "bang bang" with the CO in today's money barrack dress. I just wonder how many members of XX1LF remember or even participated in this long tab? Any comments would be helpful. There is very little evidence of our LF presence in Norton Barracks today (the scrumpy was wonderful so I'm told.) as it was and remains very much local regiment museum of the Worcestershire Regiment. Les

PS: I'm sure Cass would know as I recall you and Cpl Wiseman were COS's at the time?
