Wolverton Town Band led the parade organised by Wolverton & Greenleys Town Council to commemorate the beginning of World War 1 and those who lost their lives in the conflict.

The parade took place on Sunday 10th August and began at 11am in The Square. It was led by the band and also included representatives from the armed forces and their youth sections. It was fronted by a 1914 Renault car and continued through the streets of Wolverton before arriving at Mill Mead Hall (the old Drill Hall) where there were speeches and the unveiling of a commemorative plaque. The plaque was in remembrance of those men in The Buckinghamshire Battalion (Territorial Force) and The Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry who left the hall to serve in the “Great War”.

Everyone then went into Mill Mead Hall where World War 1-style refreshments were available and the band played some more music. There were also various displays by local organisations and demonstrations by local clubs.

Some photos of the event are on the band’s website at: http://www.wolvertontownband.org.uk/apps/photos/album?albumid=15696947
