Leeds Branch Standard is dedicated
Part of the annual Regimental Service in St Cuthbert's Chapel, York Minster on 22nd October 2005 was the Dedication of a new Standard for the Leeds Branch of YVRA. This was quite a "first" for the Regiment, the Association and, of course, for Leeds Branch. Those present also saw and heard our Patron, Dr Ingrid Roscoe, Lord-Lieutenant for West Yorkshire, reading the first lesson.
|Col. C Tattersall TD DL, President of the Regimental Association, asked the Padre, Revd Jim Butterworth to bless and dedicate the new Standard.
"Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation

Our Patron and President spoke to most, if not all, of the members present.
