N.S.W. University Regiment Colours

Description

Regimental Colours

"The Regiment was first presented with Colours on 27 October 1963 on the UNSW Oval at Kensington by the Governor of New South Wales, Lieutenant General Sir Eric Woodward. New Colours were presented at a Regimental Colours Parade on 22 August 1998 at Victoria Barracks, Paddington by the Governor General of Australia, Sir William Deane. When UNSW declined to house the old Regimental colours on campus, the regiment gained permission to retire them in St Spyridon's Greek Othrodox Church, Kensington."
