Saturday 28th June 2014 marked Armed Forces Day (and incidentally the 100th anniversary of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, which was the catalyst that led to the outbreak of WW1). Despite the threat of rain, a large crowd gathered in the town square to show their respect for those who gave their lives in conflicts around the world.
The event was attended by the new Mayor of Woking, Cllr Tony Branagan, who spoke and laid a wreath at the war memorial.
Ceremonial Officer, Rod Fraser of the Royal Naval Association thanked all those who attended, including the Almac Bisley Band, the Bisley Ladies Choir, the Surrey Army Cadet Corps of Drums, and the Sea Cadet Corps of Drums, as well as those taking part in the parade and the many spectators who showed their appreciation.
Rod Fraser reminded those present that the next two parades will be held on 100th anniversary of Armistice Sunday and Armistice Day, 9th and 11th of November respectively. All those interested in attending please go the following website for details:
