Crich Tramway Museum 1940's Weekend

Once again we found ourselves at Crich Tramway Museum for the 40's weekend. This weekend has the added importance of being the Veterans annual get together. Most of the veterans arrived on Saturday morning and a pleasant if wet day was had by all. The veterans took part in the parade and then the ceremony up at the Stand. The ceremony was short and to the point but very moving. Doug did the honours with the cross. Thanks must go to Tony Bryan for the ceremony and to his pals the HD pipe Band. In the evening we retired to the Moss Cottage for a good meal and good chat over a beer or two. This year the veterans ate their dinner off the newly acquired regimental mess crockery.

Leeds Rifles

The event was the Leeds Rifles Regimental Day and Bligny Day commemorative service. We provided a guard of honour for the arriving dignitaries including the Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire. We also posted the sentries at the memorial during the wreath laying. Afterwards we were invited back to Harewood Barracks as the guests of Colonel Jarrett, who himself was in the East Yorkshire regiment in Palestine in the intimidate post war period, for a very good meal. Colonel Jarrett has thanked us and was impressed by our efforts.
