Millbank Branch attended The Old Comrades Association Parade - 3rd June 2018

It was another glorious day of sunshine for the Federation of OCAs of London territorial and auxiliary units.  I paraded the Millbank standard  supported by Maj Gwin Foley & Capt Jane Parker.

There were 11 standard bearers and a good show from the old comrades. Wreaths were laid at the Royal Exchange and the march proceeded through the City of London to the Armoury House on City Road.  Due to the very hot weather, the inspection was kept brief.  The RAF chaplain talked about love and how wasteful war is through the poems of William Auden and Rupert Brook. Lunch was a delightful summer salad and cheesecake.  The guest speaker talked about the loneliness many veterans experience in older age - very poignant and touching. 1 in 4 veterans aged over 75 live alone. 
He asked us all to keep in contact and look out for each other in the spirit of friendship. ‘
