YORKSHIRE REGIMENT PARADE IN BRIDLINGTON
Friday 30th June 2017
Over a hundred soldiers will march through Beverley and Bridlington with colours flying, drums beating and bayonets fixed as they ...exercise their freedom rights.
Soldiers from the 2nd Battalion of The Yorkshire Regiment will take part in the Freedom parades on Friday, 30 June led by commanding officer, Lieutenant Colonel Sam Humpris.
The Honorary Freedom permits them the privilege, honour and distinction of marching through the streets of Beverley and Bridlington with bayonets fixed, colour flying and bands playing.
It was in 2006 when East Riding of Yorkshire Council resolved transfer the Freedom granted by the former East Yorkshire Borough Council and Beverley Borough Council in recognition of the long-standing association with The Yorkshire Regiment and the high esteem in which they are held by the people of the East Riding and their devoted service to Queen and country.
In the afternoon the Regiment will parade in Bridlington and at 2.30pm the soldiers will leave Bridlington Spa and march along the Promenade and South Marine Drive to Pembroke Gardens.
At about 2.40pm, the East Riding of Yorkshire Council's Town Crier will invite the parade to give their salute to the civic and military dignitaries, including the Town Mayor of Bridlington before the parade commander invites the Lord Lieutenant of the East Riding of Yorkshire to inspect the Yorkshire Regiment followed by speeches and exchange of gifts.
The parade will march off from Pembroke Gardens at about 3pm to make their way back to East Riding Leisure Bridlington via Bridge Street, Queen Street, Cross Street and the Promenade. This will be the last ceremonial, public event before officers and men of the 2nd Battalion of The Yorkshire Regiment deploy to Afghanistan at the end of July.
