Colours Norton Barracks July 1960
Does anyone have copy photos of the Norton Barracks colours parade July 1960.
I have checked at the museum previously and they were not able to give me any information.
I was a National Service Corporal during that time but have do not have any photos of our blues uniform and would like to get some copies if possible

I believe my late grandfather served with the Sherwood Foresters in the 1950's.

He enlisted in 1938 with the Northamptonshire Regiment and served with the Army Commando during WWII. After the war he somehow ended up with the Sherwood Foresters.

I've decided to try to find info on him, although he would rarely discuss the war or his army service, so I don't have a lot to go on.

I would be extremely grateful if anybody has any info, tips or recollections.

Many thanks,

Matthew Allen
