On Saturday afternoon, Cadets from the Farnham detachment gathered in the TA Centre Farnham for the 75th anniversary of the landings at Salerno. The landings were part of a Mediterranean assault by soldiers of both the British and American armies. Regiments from our ancestral history The Queens Royal Regiment and The Hampshire Regiment, fought bravely during this massive turning point in the war. It was for many a great honour, especially the cadets not only to attend, but most important to meet some of the veterans of the landings. Seen here with the Commandant of Surrey ACF Bn, Col John White were (L-R) Stan Ellis(Bren-Gunner 8th Platoon), Doug Weyhaupt(Intelligence Sgt), Brigadier Geoffrey Curtis(Queens).
