All Ranks 1968

The Corps of Drums and drill unit of the PPCLI were photographed in London when they performed at the Royal Tournament for the 50th anniversary of the Armistice. Lady Patricia Ramsay takes pride of place in this group. The uniforms worn by the drill unit are summer service dress with French grey cravats. The cravats may have been worn solely for the visit to England. The forage caps are dark green, and all members of the drill team wear gaiters, including the officer seated second from the left.
