NEW COLOURS FOR THE YORKSHIRE REGIMENT

His Royal Highness The Duke of York KG, Colonel in Chief of the Yorkshire presented the Yorkshire Regiment with four sets of new Colours. You can watch part of the ceremony by following the link;
On the following day over a thousand Soldiers of the Yorkshire Regiment marched through the City of York today with Colours flying, bayonets fixed and drums beating in the biggest Parade the City has seen since the end of the Second World War. The Green Howards Association also took part in the Parade which stepped off from Cliffords Tower through the city to York Minster for a service dedicated to the new Regimental Colours.View more pictures
