Armed Forces Day, Seaford

25 Jun 2011

Despite the blustery wind along with ever threatening rain clouds Seaford's Armed Forces Day still managed to attract a good gathering.

For the third year running Martello Fields witnessed this National event that honours current and former service men and service women alike.

Just before midday a parade started from the nearby Martello Tower making its way along the seafront then leading down onto Martello Fields.

Ex-serviceman and long time SMHS member Richard Shenton, joined the parade as Standard Bearer for the Seaford Branch of the Royal Naval Association, no mean feat in the coastal wind considering the standard is eight feet long!

The SMHS stand attracted a lot of attention, especially regarding our many activities and membership.

Thanks go to SMHS members Stewart A, Richard S, James B and our newest member Vanessa B for their assistance on the day.
