Armed Forces Day Parade
24 June 2023 @ 10:00 – 12:00
Joining Southend’s celebration of the contribution of the UK’s armed forces community as the annual parade returns to the city centre.
We’re very proud of our Royal Navy Recognition and links to His Majesty’s Armed Forces, and have been invited to represent Scouting at Southend’s Armed Forces Day Parade on 24 Jun, along with armed forces units, veterans groups and other youth organisations.
We’d like to encourage all Sea Scouts and Explorers over 12½ to attend the parade and show the strength of Sea Scouting in our city.
We will muster under the Railway bridge on Southend High Street at 10am, ready to step off at 10:30. The parade will march to Victoria Circus for an open air Church Service. We expect to be complete by 12:00.
Uniform for Scouts will be square rigs, trousers caps and scarves. If you don’t have a square rig, or have grown out of it and need a new one please see Jon or Chris on Friday (we’re not at The Den the following week!).
Family and friends are of course very welcome to stay and watch, and there are usually a variety of stalls and attractions along the high street.
