The Queen’s Colour for No 1 School of Technical Training
 


The Queen’s Colour for No 1 School of Technical Training was presented to a parade of Apprentices on 25 July 1952 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in the presence of Lord Trenchard. The present Queen’s Colour was presented by His Royal Highness The Duke of Kent on 25 September 1990.

The Colour is unique in being the only one in any of the armed Services which is paraded by non-commissioned servicemen, a privilege which normally only falls to commissioned officers. This tradition dates from the original presentation when Sergeant Apprentice F M A Hines received the Colour from Her Majesty on behalf of the School.
