Albermarle. Passing out parade 1990.
« on: Monday 10 June 19 07:54 BST (UK) »
Hi  all,
I'm trying to find folks who were at Albermarle barracks 4th August 1990 for:
Chindit Platoon.
C' Company Junior Infantary Battalion.
The Last King's Division Junior Leaders Platoon.
On the occasion of their passing out Parade.
4th August 1990.
Our son was to go onto join Green Howards.
A video was taken (no idea of company, photographer who did this)
the video we bought showed mainly the Scottish lads and not much of the Green Howards,
we learned later that some parents contacted the video company to complain and were given a version that
show Green Howards, sadly we never obtained this new copy.
I'm hoping after all this time other family members who attended the passing parade might have ordered
the new copy showing their son's on their passing out parade.
Such a long, long shot but got to try.
I've got all Army group photo's concerning Green Howards from this time at Albermarle, the video
would be wonderful if we can get copy.
Please send Pm if you can help.
All the best.

I have contacted several people including the Green Howards museum regarding video taken at passing out parade
of last King's Division, not heard back yet, I'm still hoping some one from that day can be contacted who asked for the version showing our Green Howards sons.
Once a Green Howard always a Green Howard, our son keeps in regular contact with lads he served with, so the saying must be true.
All the best.
Derek.
ps if you can help please send pm (fingers crossed)
