This Day in History: 1986-09-13

The 2nd Battalion centenary was celebrated at Church Crookham. Torrential rain had forced cancellation of the Sounding of Retreat, but indoor social events took place that day and the rain held off long enough on the morning of the 14th for a celebratory parade to take place, where the salute was taken by the Colonel in Chief, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.
