2002 Parade

Parade Pictures 2002


On a rather dreich and windy morning, as befitting such a solemn occasion, Wick RBLS Pipe Band led the annual Remembrance Sunday parade, followed by representatives from the Royal British Legion Scotland (Wick Branch) and various military and youth organisations within the county.

During the service at the War Memorial, Pipe Major Bobby Coghill played the haunting and poignant lament, Flo'ers o' the Forest, after which the parade made its way to Wick Old Parish Church for the traditional remembrance service given by the Rev. S. Thompson.

The band formed up once more to lead the parade past the Town Hall where the salute was taken by the Depute Lord Lieutenant of Caithness, Dr Ken Swanson, then continued, making its way over Bridge Street, and past the War Memorial.

The parade was officially dismissed, and to a continual, single drum beat, the band marched on its own through the town centre, back to the Band hall.

As always, Wick RBLS Pipe Band was proud to be a part of the Armistice Day events.
