1944 - 2nd Bn Oxf & Bucks LI sent a representative company of 120 officers and men (under the command of Major Howard) to take part in the procession for the “Salute the Soldier” savings campaign which took place in Oxford. The commanding officer decided to send Oxford men. It was a welcome break, for it gave everyone in the party two days at home. For security reasons this visit of representatives of the Regiment could not be advertised, but when the people of Oxford saw the detachment wearing the red beret of airborne troops together with the badge of the county Regiment, they gave the parade a rousing welcome.
The company was perfectly turned out and its marching through the city was faultless. This, together with the obvious stamp of supreme physical fitness, gained the admiration of everyone who saw the parade.
