Just come back from my units rememberance parade. Very nice day with lots of enjoyable moments and good to see the old faces back at the centre afterwards. Just one slight downer was that as a unit we were not allowed to take part in the main service at the local cenotaph with very little notice (about 2 days). Main reason being that, so we were told, was that the organisers felt that as we were to be marching in C95's and not Number 2's we were not smart enough for the parade hence the reason for no invite. This i feel is just a little unfair as the TA are not issued with Number 2's until you are a sgt or above. Many of the veterans and even the local councilor all commented on our absence and i feel that it is a shame that politicians can get their fingers so deep into so many pies that dedicated personell are stopped from taking part in their local parade when it is the same politicians who strive to make us to the same job with less equipment so they can save some cash here and there.
