Armed Forces Celebrations

          Not exactly what you would normally expect to see on the sands on a Sunday morning, but yesterday wasn’t quite what you would call a normal Sunday as Weymouth celebrated the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

          As we joined the crowds we were greeted by a rather low fly-over by one of the few remaining Spitfire planes still in operation. The Armed Forces Service from the Weymouth Cenotaph was broadcast over loud speakers to the crowds who lined the seafront to cheer the Veterans Parade as it passed by.

          Shortly after the parade we were all entertained by an Historic Military Vehicle Convoy presented by the Military VehicleTTrust.

          Some of the vehicles turned onto the sands, while others made their way to the Pavillion carpark and amongst lots of cheering, clapping and photos, even the hint of rain didn’t dampen the spirits.
