Loos Sunday 2014

As D Company was at Annual Camp in northern Italy, there was a smaller parade than normal this year but a good turn out from the Association, Army Cadet Force and the Pipes and Drums complemented a beautifully sunny morning as Colonel Ian Denison took the salute. A Service of Remembrance then followed in the Drill Hall, which was conducted by Reverend Gary Piper.

Following the service, the Chairman of the Regimental Association, Peter Lough, was delighted to receive a plaque conferring on him Honorary Citizenship of the Municipality of Piedimonte Etneo and which honours the men of the two battalions of the London Irish Rifles who served in Sicily from July to October 1943.
