This video contains footage of the 1959 Royal Visit  to Newfoundland by Queen Elizabeth II. This remarkable colour film shows both the Royal Newfoundland Regiment and the 166th Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery two years before both units amalgamated under the banner of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment.

Do you recognize anyone?

  2. The 1959 Royal Visit video was excellent. It brings back a lot of memories. I’m sure that “B” Company Band joined forces with theSt. John’s Band for that occasion.
    Nice to remenince.
