Changeover parade November 19, 1957 (You will note that this is the first time the FN C1 Rifle was carried on parade in Europe.
The Changeover took place at the FortYork Main Gate ;Bob C )

 I hope people will enjoy seeing us at our finest with full heads of hair. I have done my best to identify those that I can, maybe someone can help fill in some of the gaps. Cheers Bob
