1 Intake Battallion March out parade Sept 1965 Pucka.

It included 5 companies and E company had seven platoons but only 25 platoons could fit on the parade ground.
The VIP (bottom Right) is the Hon. Dr. Forbes, Minister of the Army is the reviewing officer.
The parade took place during September 1965.
Because of 5 companies we had to use two parade grounds.
E company was only for two intakes as 3TB was established in 1966 and the other NS men went.
As from 1966 onwards 2RTB only had 4 companies and we used only one parade ground and then faced toward the batallion headquarters.
