    Bored out of my tree yesterday, came across this Bebo page and remembered this thread ...

    http://bebo.com/PhotoAlbumBig.jsp?Me...mId=2611173345

    Mostly pics of the 2 stars passing out - not much on the medal parade end of it - but hope it helps.

      the lads with the unti standards/ flags, sorry not sure what they are called, were having problems with the step there weren't they. can remenber almost getting lumped with one of those for my two star passing out and was mighty glad I didnt have to carry the thing on a battalion march by, would take a bit of getting used to.

        It's a nice touch carrying the pennants differently. A bit of individuality is just what the df needs...

          As i remember it the lads given the flags/pennants were never shown how to carry them and were just given them because they were the only ones in SD No1's
          wouldnt blame them,...

                Speaking of photos, and things Arty, can anyone spot the two obvious
                faults in the picture below:

                To my mind, it's a slap in the face to a member who has given such long
                service to the organisation

                    Apart from a lack of the most beloved and venerated Sam Browne Belts, the Major wearing boots, the parade being taken right to left with a very small entourage the incorrect issue of bellies and the ones in brown shoes being out of step (which inself is not abnormal), no.



                    Please enlighten me.

                    These are observations and of course are not meant to demean the parade in any way. Sure it was fine....

                            That's one.

                            The other is the fact that the RSM has not been issued with the Superfine uniform
                            to which he was entitled, hence the wearing of the enlisted ranks pattern uniform
                            and the black boots which go with it.
