Armed Forces Weekend a huge success

Posted on 02nd July 2014

The Armed Forces and Veterans Weekend that took place in Wiltshire across Saturday and Sunday was a huge success.

Those who were lucky enough to be on luxury Wiltshire cottage holidays last weekend would have been able to attend a number of commemorations and events that took place in Trowbridge.

The activities that took place were all put in place to remember all those who took part in the World Wars and to celebrate the current day armed forces.

The hundreds of people that turned out over the weekend got to see a bomb disposal demonstration, performances from the Warminster Military Wives Choir, a skirmish re-enactment, a weapons display and a walkthrough timeline of soldiers from the First World War to the soldiers of the present day.

The weekend’s main event was the parade where veterans, cadets and current members of the forces walked through the centre of Trowbridge in front of the large crowds.
