CITY SALUTE


Royal Patrons: HRH Prince William of Wales and HRH Prince Henry of Wales.

The City of London thanks British troops and their families for the sacrifices they make on our behalf, through an Appeal and a special Pageant.

The sunset pageant in front of St Paul’s Cathedral on Wednesday 7th May 2008 will be a celebration of the qualities of our Servicemen and Women: their courage, modesty, toughness, and humour.

The event is a very personal tribute, being organised by the men and women of the City to demonstrate their admiration for the Armed Forces - who are in many cases their friends and neighbours, or their own relations. City Salute is not about foreign policy – it's about people, about the members of our society who choose to serve, and to go cheerfully and uncomplainingly wherever they are sent on our behalf; and about the families they leave behind here at home.

This dramatic evening event will be no ordinary military pageant: it will see the Band of HM Royal Marines marching through Temple Bar; the ceremonial troops of the Household Cavalry; a fly past and aerial display by the RAF; along with some stunning moments of theatre, and a spectacular light show projected onto St Paul’s Cathedral.

Crowds around St Paul’s and in Paternoster Square will witness this dramatic display, including a series of specially commissioned short films relayed onto giant screens. More event information will be posted on this website soon (check "Event Information").

I reckon that I'm not on their mailing list somehow. Always hear about stuff from you and not Aldershot!

I do like the "One day service - Lifetime of support" slogan, could you pass it to No 10 and the MOD.
