Royal fusiliers 1961 queens hill camp, fanling

Looking for men serving national service with my dad, Roland Pratt, in Hong Kong. He joined as Royal Warwicks then they amalgamated to fusiliers during 1960 to 61.

He was in B company. He can remember changing his cap badge on parade. They also helped to build a path for a local school on Lamma island.

It's worth typing out the text from the stone into a comment here - then if one of these men is searching for their name in Google there is a chance they will find this page.

I'm not sure about the date of the changeover. Wikipedia, with sources (The Times of London mainly), claims that they became the Royal Warwickshire Fusiliers on 1 May 1963
