Plymouth Parade to Welcome Commandos Home

On Friday 11 November Plymouth City Council is hosting a homecoming parade for 3 Commando Brigade to mark the end of the Brigade’s final deployment to Afghanistan.
It is expected to be a huge parade around the Hoe and city centre with hundreds of troops and thousands of supporters turning out in the morning to watch and cheer them on.
There will be a medal ceremony on the Hoe at 9.55am following by a short Remembrance Service at 10.50am including a gun salute and a two minute silence at 11am. The Lord Mayor Councillor Peter Brookshaw will give a welcome speech to the gathered troops and crowds then the parade will begin.
