The Suffolk Regiment on parade on the cricket ground in Quay Lane on 15th July 1959. The ground was then dominated by the town gas works. The Regiment received the freedom of the town in 1953 and they returned to Sudbury in 1959 for a farewell visit after returning from a tour in Cyprus. They were about to be merged into the East Anglia Regiment.
