VIP Seating has been arranged at the front to enable a particularly outstanding view of the parade. This will be followed by a visit to the WO’s & Sgts Mess for refreshments
Points to note. There will be other Harrogate Veterans of the College at the graduation. It may be that the two Associations will be requested to provide a Group to take a small part in the POP as this also commemorates the time that Uniacke Barracks provided the foundation of Junior Leaders. Please be aware that as IJLB being the prototype junior leader it will be expected that we set an example. The Order of Dress will be, Suit or Blazer & Flannels with either IJLB Association Tie available from our website PRI or your Regimental Tie. If you wish to wear your Regimental Beret please do so. It would be wonderful to see an array of the former Infantry headwear.
The RSM has intimated that perhaps the Senior Inspecting Officer may wish to mark this historic event to inspect both Veteran Groups on parade.
