Having been granted Freedom of Entry to Blackpool, the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment have been marching around the town. Lots of photographs were being taken but I for one wasn't going to lie down for the job.
Lions of England granted Freedom of Entry to Blackpool
On Wednesday the 19th July 2017 The Duke of Lancasterís Regiment, known locally as "The Lions of England", were granted Freedom of Entry to Blackpool. The Freedom bestows on them the right, privilege and honour of marching through the streets of Blackpool on ceremonial occasions with swords drawn, bayonets fixed, drums beating, bands playing and colours flying. Following the formal proceedings, soldiers paraded in front of North Pier where they were inspected by Blackpool Mayor Coun Ian Coleman accompanied by Brigadier Peter Rafferty, Colonel of the Regiment. They then exercised their new freedom by marching through the town centre via St Johnís Square and Talbot Road back to the Town Hall. Read more at: LinkExternal link
