That must be an old picture, the troops on parade are wearing No 2 dress, not the daft desert combat kit they wear now.

Secondly, those wearing berets have the badge over their (gasp) left eye !

GREAT PIC, smart looking lads there..Scots Guards, RMP, god knows who else, Catering Corps? I was going to say the All Arms Junior Leaders Regt, but that was in ye olden days.

Don't know much about the Foundation College. New names for Army Apprentices College/Junior Leaders? Surely they have not combined the two. As a former Army Apprentice, circa1963, I resemble that statement of being bracketed with Junior Leaders, they were the uneducated ones.
Laughing

Funny that, my old man told me at 15,' you are going into the Army son, make a man of you'', like he was in the 'cate for 22 years, 1940 - 1962. He said I want you in the Infantry..I went along to the recruiting centre, got good marks and got into the Army Apprentices School, Beachley/Chepstow. My old man, an infantryman to the core was not happy I would be a 'Ginger Beer.' But alas, he won the day, he (and family)emigrated to the Colonies in 66 and took me with him. cheers The rest is history.

I was a former Junior Leader...only circa 2500 of us went through Denbury Camp...6 (Boys) Training Regiment moved in Sep 55 renamed Junior Leaders Regiment Royal Signals Apr 57...trained by all Royal Signals cadre but disbandment came Aug 67...we cannot have been a bad bunch so far recorded...13 x Lt Col...16 x Maj...12 x Capt...not all Royal Signals at the end and many lads went to the SAS...do not know much about the Junior Leaders Regiment Royal Engineers but at one time 80% of the Sgts Mess were former Junior Leaders

Hi Steve,

You would probably remember my old QM from 7 Sigs days - Fred Pavey as the RSM or perhaps his brother Stan Pavey who was RSM after Fred. Sadly, Fred is upstairs in that big Quatermaster Stores in the sky.

Hi Jim
Did not meet them in service but had a long chat with Fred and his daughter at our 50th Anniversary Reunion in Newton Abbot September 2005…knew that he passed away...Stan could not make the reunion but we have exchanged emails since then but not for a while…guess you know he lives in Harrogate…both total gentlemen
Best regards
Steve

Hi Steve,

Nice to hear about the Paveys etc. I remember Fred Pavey purchased a new Ford Cortina Mk1 in maroon and Rocky Knight the MTO had one in metallic blue. Bet they would be worth a bob or two now. Also with Fred being our QM, we had RQMS Kennedy, Sgt Partridge in the clothing stores. The latter was always getting officers scrounging No 2 dress and altered to look like a officers tunic with patch pockets, large buttons and sleeve cuffs etc. It was cheaper than a tailored tunic but the material was not the same.
Also had a Cpl who had a BMW Isetta 3 wheeler.
All good memories.
