Saturday 4th of May saw Mitch, Neil and I on parade with Betty (the Jeep) at the VE Memorial at Knightswood Cross, Glasgow.    This was organised by the Parachute Regiment Association (PRA) of Glasgow.  Attending the parade were members of 125 Ration Sqn, RLC (V). various British Legion and veteran associations, representatives from the Navy, Army and Air Forces as well as the Merchant Navy.   After a church service there was a ceremony around the memorial finishing with the wreath laying before a march past and parade down towards the Lincoln Inn on Great Western Road.  The weather was kind, though a bit blowy, and the march was preceded by Betty and another jeep carrying veterans who were unable to march.   Next one will be in August for the VJ Parade, more of which I will post nearer time.
