Hungerford Arcade proudly watched as the REME 6th Armoured Close Support Battalion held a parade through the town, finishing at the Royal British Legion Club, Church Street in support of Armed Forces Day. This annual event takes place around the country to commemorate/celebrate all the men and women of our Armed Services who serve at home and around the world. The Union Flags lined the High Street, waving gently in the soft breeze as the soldiers marched pass.
Crowds of people came from miles around, lining the street from early morning to watch this wonderful event taking place in our town. There were military vehicles, soldiers manning their stalls and talking with the public. The salute was taken by the Mayor, Cllr Keith Knight, Deputy Mayor, Cllr Helen Simpson and The Constable of the Town and Manor, Mrs Ellie Dickens.
Not forgetting the wonderful Hungerford Town Band who entertained the troops and the public on this very hot Armed Forces Day.
