Said with no irony, there is a facebook site and a LI Reunited webpage.

Much more civilized than the RGJ association annual pissup in Winchester, in fact it only looks like half the fun.
It's really about how much you can hack it and whether you'd fall over at the first sign of a Danish for breakfast.

In the You Tube clip the LI old comrades appear to be carrying a battalions colours at their reunion (with the colour belts worn back to front). Is that the normal form at these events?

The colours for 1LI are in Bodmin town hall the assn flags are almost identical to Bn flags with extra wording! I have seen that footage before and the colours as presented by the Queen aren't there!

I am glad to hear that the You Tube footage is not as it might appear, but that does beg the question as to what the association is doing having flags or standards made that have all the features of colours presented by the Sovereign, even down to the Royal Crest atop the pike!

Frankly I don't see how it matters a jot seeing how HM Govt decided it doesn't need them any more, regiments, men or flagpoles!
You could argue that they shouldn't wear badges on blazers or medals!
