1958 - 1st Bn Rebadging down at Warley Barracks.
« on: May 27, 2009, 10:05:06 AM »
Morning all,
A question that I have been asked many times was concerning the period about June 1958 when we were rebadged, our old berets with the Fleur de Lys handed in and  a new  beret with new Red oblong patch plus the badge of the Lancastrian Brigade was issued to us. Yet the photograph taken much later on the day of the Amalgamation shows the members of the W.Os & Sgts Mess wearing our original Fleur de Lys.
Can anyone give a satisfactory explanation for this, no theories please, just pure fact supported by source references.
George.
