It was with a great deal of pride that I led the band through Leicester City Centre for the annual Armed Forces Day parade.
The band had clearly been up till the we hours shining shoes and pressing uniforms and I don't think we have ever looked so smart and well turned out.
The piping and drumming was also top notch as we all did our best to honour the lads and lasses of our Armed Forces, past and present. By the very many positive comments I received in the Cathedral and also in the last few days I think your efforts were much appreciated.
Thank you all and well done.
