We Will Remember Them

Updated: Nov 17, 2022

On Sunday the 13th, our branch attended 3 remembrance parades but I may be wrong. 'I was we are now up to 5 parades'.

If you attended a parade and have a photo or two, then please send them to me at and I will post them here.

Clive and Geof leading the way in Wimborne.

Camp Parade: Geof informs us that Clive did a super job parading the Branch Standard in the Camp. Where we were made welcome and that they met up with some old friends.

'Dit' - The Guest of honour was a past CO. Who when attending Emmetts went to meet the RM Bugler to be greeted with a smart salute and “ Sir Mr Haywood said I could wear my wellingtons” ok I didn’t think they would be pink and spotted!

In Broadstone WW2 veteran Eddie Gaines RN 96 presented the wreath on behalf of the Naval Service.

Eddi Gaines Account of DDay, some may find this distressing.

A selfie from the follow-on at Broadstone RBL, a bit out of focus and not so flattering hopefully something better to replace it soon. It is always good to meet up for the annual get-together with the lads of 29 Commando RA - 148 battery Naval Gunfire Support Forward Observers.

I laid a wreath on behalf of the RMA at the Broadstone Memorial, hence the photo of me saluting.


Attended Gillingham,( North Dorset), parade. I was sadly the only RM on parade but was accompanied by 50+ former service personnel including a couple of serving matelots in No1's. Good turnout Jack!


Laid a wreath in Littlehampton on behalf of my Dads old unit, 30 Commando AU. They were based in Littlehampton prior to D-Day.
