The Last Parade?  Again? Again?


Contributed by: Trevor STUBBERFIELD (52A)




On Saturday 15th of September 2007, there took place what was expected to be the last occasion when the R.E.M.E. Garrison could exercise its privilege to march through the centre of Wokingham Town as Honorary Townsfolk. 


Five years had passed and on the 3rd of June 2012 the Corps exercised their privilege once again and marched though Wokingham town.  This was part of the town’s celebration for the Diamond Jubilee of the Queen.  At the same time it was a chance to celebrate the 70 years since the formation of R.E.M.E. in 1942. 


On Sunday 14th of June 2015 the Corps marched once again through Wokingham town, for the third ‘last time’.  With the local Arborfield Garrison soon to close, and the troops decamping to Lyneham in Wiltshire, it may be that this truly will be the ‘Last Parade’.  But then again…….?
