Veterans Day Parade,

29th June 2007

The Veteran Parade service was held in St. Mary’s Church which was led by Reader Mrs Marian Howe. This was followed by wreath laying at the memorial and then a reception in the Anchor annex.

This was to be one of the last Veteran Day parades to be held as from 2009 it was changed to Armed Forces Day, much to the contention of Merchant Navy Veterans, of which I am one.

My thanks to my daughter Bridget for photographing the occasion.
