Poppy Pride 10.11.15

Led by the school’s Corps of Drums and under the command of Contingent Cadet Regimental Sergeant Major, 280 Loughborough Grammar School Combined Cadet Force cadets marched through Loughborough in fine style on Sunday 8th November as part of the town’s Annual Remembrance Day Parade and Service.  After a brief period of rain early in the morning, the parade and service took place in good weather and by the time the contingent had marched back from the centre of the town to the school campus, the sun had come out and the full spectacle of the parade was enjoyed by the many parents and supporters who were assembled in the coach park to welcome the cadets back.

A particularly impressive aspect of the parade was the procession from the market place back to the school when the Corps of Drums, led by the Drum Major, headed the column of marchers which by then comprised not only the Grammar School contingent but also 203 Squadron 158 Transport Regiment of the Army Reserve and 2229 (Loughborough) Squadron of the Air Training Corps on their way back to their base on the Leicester Road.
