2 CAVALRY REGIMENT GUIDON
BACKGROUND to VISIT TO 2 CAVALRY REGIMENT -- DARWIN 2000
On 9th. October 1971 at Holdsworthy N.S.W. the Battle Honours of the 2/6 Cavalry Commando Regiment were passed into the custody of 2 Cavalry Regiment. A plaque to represent the occasion was presented to that Regiment by our original CO. Brigadier M. A. Fergusson DSO MC ED.
This plaque is now fixed to a Memorial situated at the entrance to the HQ of the 2 Cavalry Regiment, Waler Lines, Robertson Barracks, Palmerston, NT.
The 30th Anniversary of the formation of 2 Cavalry Regiment fell on 30 October 2000 To honour this anniversary re-dedication ceremonies were carried out at a Dawn Service for both the Guidon and the 2/6 Cavalry Commando Regiment Plaque and Memorial,
To join in this celebration four members of our Regimental Associations were invited to attend by the 2 Cavalry Regiment. They were: President Robin McKay, Vice President Joe Byrne, Secretary of the Queensland and Northern Rivers Association Ross Woodrow and President of the Victorian Association Harry Hunting. Rob quotes, "After being allocated quarters we were taken to Regimental HQ to meet the RSM WO1 Paul "Happy"Hanlon who invited us to meet the CO of the Regiment, Lieutenant Colonel Michael Krause. Both the CO and the RSM gave us a very warm welcome. The CO stressed the importance placed on our visit in order to strengthen the ties between the two Regiments.
