Sorry for the short notice but the annual memorial parade and service is tomorrow at St Michael and All Angels church, Newport Road, Llantarnam, Cwmbran.
Due to road closures to facilitate the parade, you need to be in the area by 10:15. There is parking at the adjacent pub (The Greenhouse) but this usually fills up fairly quickly.

All are welcome.

Best regards, Colin Fielding.

Good article here from today's Argus:

http://www.southwalesargus.co.uk/news/14226037.VIDEO__Parade_to_commemorate_Rorke_s_Drift_hero_John_Fielding_VC/

The video is a bit odd ... it starts with an advert!

I'm glad that the parade went well, and my congratulations to the organisers.

That was short notice Colin. I've only just seen this post.

Hi, thanks for that. Am I seeing a different video? I don't see any advert. The video is a minute long and is of the band/parade marching off, having formed up after the ceremony had finished, or is there more?
CADESA did a splendid job, apart from forgetting to pre-heat the immediate area around the grave, my feet are still cold !
The band were indeed excellent, as was the whole service. Sincere thanks to all involved, including the Greenhouse Pub next door for supplying tea and coffee prior to the event.
Six weeks to go and I'll be standing on that patch of ground in KwaZuluNatal.

Kind regards, Colin Fielding.

That's strange .... I've just looked at it again, and it begins with a shot of the band, then a 30 second advert from Chessington World of Adventures, followed by the near minute long coverage of the parade marching off. I get the whole video, and the advert is an extra!

I hope that you enjoy yourself in KwaZuluNatal - best wishes.
