    Background: IN SINGAPORE, THE 1ST BN., THE SHERWOOD FORESTERS COMMEMORATED THE 1854 BATTLE OF ALMA AT A CEREMONY TUESDAY (SEPT. 20) NIGHT HELD AT THE SELARANG BARRACKS.

    THE UNITED KINGDOM COMMISSIONER-GENERAL FOR SOUTH-EAST ASIA, LORD SELKIRK, TOOK THE SALUTE AT THIS COLOURFUL FLOODLIT CEREMONY.

    THE SHERWOOD FORESTERS ARE THE REGIMENTAL DESCENDANTS OF THE 95TH REGIMENT, WHICH TOOK A MAJOR PART IN THE BATTLE OF ALMA AGAINST RUSSIA.

    THE COLOUR WAS TAKEN OVER BY THE ENSIGN FROM THE REGIMENTAL SERGEANT-MAJOR AND THEN TROOPED DOWN THE LINE OF GUARDS. THE GUARDS THEN MARCHED PAST IN SLOW AND QUICK TIME.

    AFTER A GENERAL SALUTE, THE CEREMONY CULMINATED IN A MARCH PAST DURING WHICH THE FORESTERS' REGIMENTAL COLOURS WERE DISPLAYED.
