  • Description

    The Duke of Edinburgh took the salute October 24 at a parade at Bergen Hohne Barracks, near Hanover, Germany, to mark the amalgamation of two regiments.

    The two P the 8th King's Royal Irish Hussars and the 4th Queen's Own Hussars. The Duke will be Colonel-in-Chief of the new one: the Queen's Royal Irish Hussars.

    At the parade the Duke read a message from Sir Winston Churchill, who served in the Fourth Hussars, regretting he could not be present and saying the parade marked a beginning, not an end. Sir Winston is to be one of the colonels of the new regiment, together with Air-Marshal Sir John Baldwin.

    The Duke, in uniform as the new regiment's colonel-in-chief, presented it with a guidon (standard) inscribed with the many battle honours of both regiments.
