Armed Forces Day Celebrations (Sunday)

Today they had the Veteran’s Parade along the seafront :)

There was an open air church service at the start (we didn’t see that though, we arrived after), and then the parade started with marching bands and veteran soldiers marching along the esplanade.

The Cadets went next; kids from the Sea Cadets, Army Cadets, and Air Cadets……I was in the Air Cadets for a couple of years when I was in secondary school ;P

After that, we had re-enactors marching past in World War 2 uniforms, followed by motorbikes from that period, and then loads of historic military vehicles of all shapes and sizes ^^

At the end was a big convoy(?) of modern motorbikes, showing their support for the veterans :)
