Good turnout for Armed Forces Day
Friday, 01 June 2012
SOME military units had to pull out of the Teignmouth Armed Forces Day Parade at the weekend, because of Olympic duties.
But there was still a good turn out for the town centre and seafront events on Saturday, and Nick Maylem, of Canonteign Sea Cadets, which co-ordinated the parade on behalf of the town council and ex-servicemen and women organisations, said he was pleased with the way it went.
‘It was very moving, and I am sure everybody who took part or watched was moved by the respect shown to all those people in the military who gave their lives for us,’ he said.
