Hi Maurice,I hope that you are keeping well and it is nice to reply to you message. You have hit the nail right on the head, After hostilities in Cyprus, the battalion moved from Limni/Polemi to just outside the capital Nicosia. Prior to that we had not carried out any parades with the band and drums. A few weeks later 0n a Saturday morning we had our first regimental parade and I will never forget the band and drums being outside the guardroom which was about 50 yards from the main entrance to the camp waiting for the companies to take formation behind us. The RSM Jack Barlow was in fine voice and as each company arrived behind us it was for me one of the finest sites to see, especially C company, who was led by Sergeant Nash, they were absolutely brilliant and very well drilled. on being instructed to advance by the RSM we were led out by Drum Major Robinson who I considered to be the smartest drum major in the British Army and I will never ever have the feeling of pride I felt at that time as we passed through the camp gate. It is something that I will never forget. In the words of Kitna as he told us at the time "Big me little you XXTH hit Guardsman _hit" What a time in our lives to have been and felt something. Kind regards,Miffy
