Richmond Sunday 2014
A wreath was laid at the regimental memorial at the head of Frenchgate, before a special church service at St Mary’s conducted by Rev John Chambers and Canon Richard Cooper.
The parade commander was Major Dan Oxberry and the band on this occasion was provided by the Yorkshire Regiment.
After the Church Service the Regiment marched up from St Mary’s where The President of The Green Howards Association, Major General A P Farquhar CBE, took the salute. In the memorial gardens Captain Dennis Appleyard was presented with a statue of the battle of Alma to mark his retirement.
A number of Green Howards were also presented with gold and silver badges in recognition of their long association with the Regiment.
