Thursday 21/4/16 St Georges Day Parade, Emsworth

April 21, 2016

What a wonderful morning Andy and I have had today. We attended the ninth St Georges Day Parade in Emsworth, where serving soldiers from 12 Regiment Royal Artillery marched with Veterans along the High Street. In addition today is the occasion of Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday, so the crowds sang Happy Birthday to HM and sang the National Anthem.

The Lord Mayor of Portsmouth joined us today as our guest as we in the Havant Borough hold celebrations for St Georges Day whereas Portsmouth did not.

Music was provided by a Pipe Band for the march and The George Regis Jazz Band in The Square.
