Gallipoli Parade, Whitehall – 25th April 2015

Notice from CONA… The RN is leading on the Cenotaph Parade to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli campaign on Saturday 25th April 2015. We have been invited to provide an RNA platoon of veterans to march alongside RN, Australian, New Zealand and Turkish serving and veterans. There will be an Army, RM and Turkish bands. Muster 10:00 in Whitehall. Service completes about 11:30 for a march past. Please let Nigel Huxtable or Paul Quinn (at RNA HQ) know if you would like to march – no standards by the way.

Latest update from the Semaphore Circular as follows… ” There are still places in the Gallipolli 100 march with over 48 RNA signed up for a great experience. Give Nigel a ring if you want to book a place or find out more about it.

The RNA along with other fellow Naval Associations was invited to form a platoon and take part in the Gallipoli Parade in Whitehall on Saturday 25th April 2015. Shipmates who applied to take part should muster and form up in Horseguards Avenue, at the Northern end of MOD Main Building, accessed from Victoria embankment at 1000. There will be toilets available and hopefully a field kitchen for tea and ‘bacon butties’. This location is being used because Horse Guards Parade is out of bounds on the day due to preparations for the London Marathon the following day. At the appropriate time, Marshalls will step the contingents off and move them on to Whitehall.
