Princess Diana Inspecting the Band

Diana is seen here with the Colonel of the 13th/18th in June 1989. He is the one in the darker shade of service dress, Major-General Stuart Watson. The other officer is Lt. Col. Allan Mallinson. Both wear the distinctive forage cap of the old 13th with blue and white colours. They also have the undress pouch belt of highly polished brown leather with whistle. Behind Diana is the bandmaster in the old full dress of the 13th Hussars. Behind the Colonel are members of the band.
