    Background: THE QUEEN'S ROYAL IRISH HUSSARS WHO LEAVE MALAY NEXT MOUTHY FOR GERMANY AFTER SERVING TWO YEARS IN THE MALAYSIAN BORNEO TERRITORIES, SINGAPORE AND MALAYA, HELD A FAREWELL PARADE IN IPOH, NORTHWEST MALAYA RECENTLY. THEY WERE JOINED BY A CONTINGENT OF THE THIRD BATTALION, ROYAL AUSTRALIAN REGIMENT, STATIONED IN TERENDAK CAMP, ON THE WEST COAST, WITH WHOM THEY HAVE HAD CLOSE ASSOCIATION.

    IN 1951, THE TWO UNITS FOUGHT SIDE BY SIDE IN KOREA.

    THE PARADE WAS INSPECTED BY LIEUTENANT GENERAL SIR RAGNAR GARRETT, HONORARY COLONEL OF THE ROYAL AUSTRALIAN REGIMENT.

    THE QUEEN'S ROYAL IRISH HUSSARS WAS FORMED IN 1953 BY THE AMALGAMATION OF THE 4TH QUEEN'S OWN HUSSARS AND THE 8TH KING'S ROYAL IRISH HUSSARS. IT IS THROUGH THE LATTER THAT THE BRITISH AND AUSTRALIAN UNITS HAVE FORMED THEIR ATTACHMENT.

    THE MASSED BANDS OF THE HUSSARS AND THE AUSTRALIAN BATTALION WERE JOINED BY THE PIPED AND DRUMS OF THE 1/7 GURKHA RIFLES FOR THE BEATING OF RETREAT.

    BOTH UNITS PARADED TWO GUARDS OF FIFTY MEN AND THE GUIDON OF THE IRISH HUSSARS AND THE COLOUR OF THE AUSTRALIAN REGIMENT WERE TROOPED.

    THE AFFILIATION WAS FIRST MARKED WHEN THE THEN COMMANDING OFFICER OF THE 8TH HUSSARS, LIEUTENANT COLONEL SIR GUY LOWTHER, IMPRESSED BY THE WAY THE COMMONWEALTH SOLDIERS HAD FOUGHT TOGETHER, WALKED INTO THE AUSTRALIAN OFFICERS' MESS AND DRAMATICALLY BANGED HIS LANCE AND ANNOUNCED, "WE ARE AFFILIATED." HOWEVER, QUEEN ELIZABETH APPROVED AN OFFICIAL AFFILIATION TWO YEARS LATER.
