ARMED Forces Day will also be celebrated across the county, as Trowbridge prepares for its annual event in the County Town park.

Across Saturday and Sunday a host of military exhibits, vehicles and veteran associations will be descending on the park to celebrate Armed Forces Day.

This year the event will have a WW1 tank called the Deborah 2, which is a replica of a tank presented to the town in 1919.

There will be several flypasts, including a Battle of Britain Memorial spit fire flypast at 1.58pm on Saturday and a Spit Fire flypast at 3.09pm on Sunday.

The Red Arrows will do a fly past at 12.44pm on Sunday afternoon over the park.

Organiser Mary Rose Mantle, of Bellefield Crescent, Trowbridge said: “We want any veteran to come and join the parade through town on Sunday. This is our 15th year and every year the event seems more popular. This year we have more military and classic vehicles than ever”

The parade will meet at 1.15pm outside County Hall to set off through the town at 2pm.

The salute will take place in front of the town hall followed by a Drumhead Service at the Bandstand.

There will also be classic cars, re-enactors, a WW1 trench and tank, and flypasts for the family friendly event.

Choirs, dancers and marching bands will entertain the crowd throughout the day with music form across different eras.

The Seend branch of the Royal British Legion will hold a Drumhead Service on the Lye Fields at 3pm on Sunday.
