The Corps of Royal Engineers is pleased to announce the return of its Freedom of Medway Parade on Rochester High Street on Sunday 17th September at 12.30pm.
Following the Corps Memorial Service at Rochester Cathedral, which is being livestreamed for the first time on the Corps Facebook and Youtube Channels, Royal Engineers from 1 RSME (based at Brompton Barracks), The Nottinghamshire Band of the Royal Engineers, Cadets from Gads Hill School and members of the Royal Engineers Association (REA), will parade down Rochester High Street with Bayonets fixed, the Salute will be taken by Lord Lieutenant of Kent Lady Colgrain.
The Corps of Royal Engineers are looking forward to once again celebrating their connection to Medway with a freedom parade which has been celebrated in Rochester for many years, having first been awarded the Freedom of Gillingham 70 years ago in 1953. The Corps are looking forward to marching in their spiritual home again, after no parade was possible last year in tribute to the Passing of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Members of the Public are welcome to come and watch the Parade on Sunday on Rochester High Street and can tune into the service and the parade on Facebook and Youtube.
