The Picture above is the main gate of Brancepeth Camp, the Guardroom is on the right. Probably taken in 1955 when the 2nd Btn DLI were been disbanded I think they marched up from the castle after the parade,
they were in Wuppertal Germany up in till then. - [Tony Bewick]

Thomas Briggs writes: I came across this photograph in the Evening Chronicle on the 15th July, 1999. It is of a column of Territorials marching down Dryden Road in Gateshead on a recruiting drive in May 1939. I tried to blow it up but I could not make out the cap badges, it's possible it could be the D.L.I. Photo courtesy and copyright of Thomas Briggs.
