I remember with a smile one of our LE Officers in drag (he was a big unit), taking the salute on the final dress rehearsal the day before Princess Anne was due to carry out the real thing, back in 1983. He had fixed on the biggest pair of false top bollocks I had ever seen. He was a true character and brought a smile to the Regiments face after the usual weeks of fcuk about that precedes a Royal visit.I recall a certain COs wife standing on a Dias at the main gate taking the salute as the Regiment - all 57 challengers worth - exited en route for an FTX. That was just downright weird.
Presumably he had the COs permission!
