The Sovereign's Parade for Seniors ( 1A), the first passing-out parade to be known by the new title conferred by His Majesty in July, 1948, was held on Wednesday 20th October 1948. The parade was taken by General Sir James Steele K.B.E., D.S.O., M.C., LL.D., Adjutant General to the forces.
In his address, General Steele stressed the important of man management as the key to successful leadership in the years ahead, praised the efficiency of the drill and turn out, and reminded officer cadets that the memory of their studies at the R.M.A Sandhurst would provide for them a yardstick for which they might estimate the standards they would meet in their everyday life.
The weather for the occasion was fair, and sunshine added brilliance to the spectacle.
