On the 14 July 02 members of the Royal British Legion together with veterans from other ex service organisations, gathered in Warwick to mark the Queen's Golden Jubilee, with a Service in the church of St Mary, followed by a Parade through the streets of Warwick.

The Band of 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron Air Training Corps, maintaining its association with the Royal British Legion was in attendants to lead the cadet forces and other youth organisations element of the parade.

At exactly 14:30 hrs a lone bugler from the band of the Warwickshire Royal Regiment of Fusiliers sounded the call to muster the parade. The Royal British Legion and contingents from other ex service organisations, Emergency Services, Cadet Forces and youth organisations formed up in the market place under the watchful eye of the RSM of 35 Signal Regiment. The parade was then inspected by Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire and his party the High Sheriff of Warwickshire, and Brigadier Walker.

After the inspection the parade formed up for the march off. The band of the Warwickshire Royal Regiment of Fusiliers lead the first element of the parade which comprised of the Royal British Legion Standards, RBL members, Royal Navy and Army veterans. The second element of the parade, which included regular & TA uniformed units, RAF veterans and a wheelchair contingent was lead by the Coventry Royal British Legion Pipe Band. The third and final element of the parade, lead by our band was formed by Sea, Army and Air Cadet units followed by representatives of other youth organisations.

The Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire, the High Sheriff of Warwickshire, Brigadier Walker and the RBL Warwickshire County President took the salute.

Everyone who took part in this parade should be congratulated on his or her performance, particularly for enduring the heat for the period of the inspection. It's just typical of our weather, we get the hottest day of the year when we're all togged up in full number one uniform on parade with no shade.
