6th Battalion laying of the colour event 23 Mar 24

The 6th Battalion’s Colour was presented on the 24th of June 1979, and the newer 3rd Battalion Colours were presented to the Battalion at Duxford in August 2014. The old Queens Colour was laid up at the Regimental Chapel in Ely on 02 Jun 2018.

The 23rd of March 2024 will see the 6th Battalion Regimental Colour move to its final resting place, thus closing a very long chapter of service to the Regiment and the Crown. This will be a memorable event for those attending and those who served under these Regimental Colours.
