Canvey Island Armed Forces Day 2015

What a brilliant parade

By Janet Penn

Once again Canvey's Town Council put on a great Armed Forces Day Parade, Service and Military Exhibition. The sun shone and the crowds lined the route.

These are a few of the photos we took on the day. A video will be uploaded shortly. Thank you goes to everyone who turned out to cheer on our service men and women.
