Submariners from HMS Vengeance to exercise their freedom of the Borough of St Edmundsbury
One hundred submariners from HMS Vengeance will exercise their Freedom of the Borough on Sunday, October 22, as they parade through Bury St Edmunds.
Following a 17-year affiliation between the town and HMS Vengeance, the ship and the town’s Sea Cadet unit were awarded the borough’s highest civic honour in May this year.
The parade will start from the Abbey Gardens at 2.30pm and march up Abbeygate Street to Charter Square. Here, the band will play and the Mayor will inspect the troops, before they march back to Angel Hill.
This is an important date in the civic calendar and everyone is welcome to attend.
