We also want to get a Vesting Day contingent this year consisting of members who were serving on Vesting Day in 1968. They will form up before 1LI and will lead The Regular and Volunteer battalions off parade. Space on the square will be at a premium so it would be a great help in placing the markers if we had a good idea of how many will form this contingent. If you're interested please let your Bn Reps know (Bill Bearham, Decca Winters and Charlie Edwards). The contingent will need to nominate a contingent commander who will be able to give the words of command.
