For the second year running the band of 121(Nuneaton) Squadron together with the band of the
Nuneaton contingent of the Army Cadet Force headed the Remembrance Day parade in Nuneaton.

Silence fell on Riversley Park in Nuneaton as people gathered to remember those who have died in conflict. Hundreds stood in remembrance as the minutes ticked away to the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. This years service was of special significance as it was one of the rare occasions when both Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day coincided.

After the wreath laying service at the War Memorial, where members of the cadet forces stood shoulder to shoulder with veterans in tribute to the war dead, the parade marched out of the park along Coton Road to the Town Hall, where the mayor of Nuneaton and Bebworth took the salute.

The Squadron band had the honor of leading ex-servicemen of the British Legion, Burma Star Association, Dunkirk Veterans, Korean War Veterans and serving members of 30th Signals Regiment as well as contingents of the emergency services and youth groups, in the march past through the center of the town.
