      Derek I have absolutely no idea whatsoever. I was just a traveller passing through Bodmin when I took these photos.
      However, I know someone who might be able to help you. Elsewhere in Bodmin there is a very fine DCLI memorial, and there is also a museum. A very nice lady from the museum posted a comment on this website a few months back, so if you click the link below, scroll down the page you arrive at to the comments at the bottom (better still, look at the pictures as you do), and then click on the link (her name) you will find yourself at the museum website, and I suggest you then contact them. Good luck.

        Thank you very much Magicfingers, how kind!
        Derek, we’d be delighted to hear from you – we hold the national Light Infantry collection and we’re working hard to get in touch with former Light Infantrymen. We’ve got some great LI projects in the pipeline! Please do have a look at our website under Military and then Light Infantry, or you can read about what we’ve been up to on our blog (accessed through the website).

        Regarding images of the colours, I’m not sure specifically what you want, but if we have anything suitable here then we would be more than happy to help.

        I look forward to hearing from you. Sophie

          Of course the problem may be that, and I’m sure this happens – I’ve done it myself on other websites – Derek has to remember which website he left his message on if he didn’t bookmark it, if you see what I mean. Thanks for your above comment Sophie, and I hope he contacts you.
