Despite the inclement weather, we enjoyed an excellent parade day on Remembrance Sunday at Connaught House. An excellent turn out from No 15 (Loos) Company, the ACF and the Regimental Association.
Over the coming months, we shall also continue to mark the 80th anniversary of the London Irish Rifles’ outstanding contribution to the liberation of Italy. To mark the 80th anniversary of the invasion of Sicily (Operation Husky), representatives of the London Irish Rifles Museum recently attended commemorations in Catania, Syracuse and Avola in July and also visited the Memorials to the London Irish Rifles and 38 (Irish) Brigade at Piedimonte Etneo and Maletto. We shall expect a representative Association party to attend commemorative events at Anzio, the Garigliano river and Cassino in 2024 so watch this space for further updates on those plans.
Keep in close contact with us, whether it by regularly visiting this website or joining the Regimental Association and coming along to one of our parade days.
