Thousands of Servicemen and women took part in a Military Parade on Saturday 19th May to pay tribute to the Queen in her Diamond Jubilee year.
This established tradition is in honour of the Queen’s close relationship with the Armed Forces. The Parade saw 2500 servicemen and women from the Royal Navy, the Army and the Royal Air Force perform the march which commenced at Windsor Castle in the Quadrangle, then left to march through the town and ended in a purpose-built muster arena, close to the Castle.
The Queen and Prince Philip travelled through the town and waved to the large crowd who had arrived earlier in the day.
A service was held, with the Chief of Defense staff, General Sir David Richards, paying tribute to the Queens 60 year reign and her commitment to the Commonwealth.
A fly-by was performed by the Royal Air Force which was watched by the Queen and Prince Philip, along with a few other members of the Royal Family.
