Blandford Royal British Legion hold a ‘virtual parade’ to commemorate VE Day

With all the events that had been arranged in the town sadly cancelled due to the Corona pandemic, the Branch Committee of the Blandford RBL decided to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day by holding a virtual parade at 11:00am on Friday 8th May by parading seperately in their own gardens.

Those parading are Gyan Tamang, our Branch President, Tony Lucas, Vice Chairman and branch standard bearer, Marie Parsons, standard bearer for the Women's section, Denis West Parade Marshal, Bryan Kelly Branch secretary, David Jardine and Robert Taylor who form part of the branch committee, and myself as the new Branch Chairman. The photographs do contain a few library photos due to individual circumstances.
