It was I think in 1983 when the 16/5th were amalgamated with the 17/21st to form the Queen's Royal Lancers and then a year or so back the 9/12th were added and the name now is The Royal Lancers. It's the only Lancer regiment left. The photo is one I didn't even know had been taken until I saw it on the internet. It's from when we were moving to Barce, Libya from Fanara, Egypt early in 1950. Can't enlarge it much but I am standing at the back near the ventilator. My mate next to me is wearing a vest if that is any help and is just on my left.
Another 7 years spent in uk and germany and final 6 months in cyprus
Back in 1990, the 14/20th went out to the Gulf and I thought that the only contribution I could make was to start giving blood again, went along to do so, only to be told I was too old! The sqdn ldr. was Major Peter Garbutt, born at Sabratha, while I was serving, and son of capt. 'Wild Bill' (my tank cmdr.) so I sent him a cheque towards the party they would undoubtedly have when they came back.
