Regiment marches to the Island Hall

Posted Thu 14th August 2008 at 11:05

Soldiers from the 30th Signals Regiment marched from The Butes to the Island Hall on the final day of Alderney Week.

The parade began shortly before noon on Sunday and attracted a host of islanders into the streets.

As Alderney's adopted regiment, the 30th Signals exercised the right bestowed on them by the States 20 years ago by marching through the town with pennant flying, drums beating and bayonets fixed.

President Sir Norman Browse inspected the regiment at the Island Hall before hosting a Vin d'Honneur to celebrate the occasion in the Anne French Room.

Sir Norman thanked the regiment for visiting Alderney during the reception and encouraged them to return to the island next year.

The President alluded to the fact the regiment had won numerous Alderney Week competitions, meaning they would have to return to defend their titles.

An Alderney clock was presented to the regiment by Sir Norman, who also praised Alderney Week organisers for all their hard work over the last seven days.
