Veteran's Day to be celebrated

It's Veteran's Day.

Those who have served their country will be recognised with a full programme of events.

The centrepiece of the day will be a parade along Douglas Promenade, and a church service before a get-together with entertainment at the Villa Marina.

Twelve Regiment from the Royal Artillery has sent a Major, a Sergeant Major and eight soldiers who will lead the parade, most of them veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan.

In a real community effort, students from five Island schools will also have the opportunity to talk to veterans about their involvement.

Chairman of the National Day Veteran’s Committee is Brigadier Norman Butler (audio file attached):
