Some Sundays...

I went into Central London on Sunday to display my gratitude to these men and women
It is probably the last time they will parade at this venue. It was a typically simple,understated occasion that the MET police throughout the year.Not a large crowd for a central London event but even the curious throngs of camera snapping tourists held their peace as the service progressed.

Simple low key policing and assisted by the diligent and resourceful St Johns tending to the hot,tired and weary.

As they marched back into the Whitehall side street from the service parade it was good to see all the veterans cheered and clapped by those who watched.
I think one of the biggest cheers was to Albert Rogers who was, gently, to the triumphant music of the assembled army band, assisted to the rendezvous by a parading police officer.

Some Sundays it is worthwhile getting your backside out of the house.
