Rememberance Sunday Procession
« on: March 07, 2014, 10:30:13 PM »
How many of us remember the Rememberance Sunday procession coming down the road, the leader tossing the staff as high in the air as possible, followed by the Drum and bugle corps War veterans, Church parisheners Salvation Army, British legion members, Boy scouts, Girl guides, Cubs and Brownies
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

The thing is with today, marches and processions cost a lot of money and take a lot of organisation. You have to have marshals and a police presence and I think you have to get a license or at least permission from the police and the council. Simply it is too much for small organisations to afford or arrange.

It's not like it used to be when any group could just form up and march from a to b such as a boy scout troop. For one thing the way traffic is today you would be taking your life in your hand if you tried.

Yes your quite right if 50 started out there would probably only be about 5 left at the end. What a shame though.
