Remembrance Day Parade

Sunday the 8th November saw us marching round the streets of Kingstanding Birmingham as we marched veterans, those serving, cadet corps and scouts and brownies and many others from Perry Common British Legion No.1 to the Remembrance Day church service and back again on a mild and unusually warm November morning.

We have proudly led the Perry Common RBL around these streets for at least the last 9 years and they always make us feel very welcome, They are a great bunch of people and the first question we get asked at the end of every parade is can we do next year? The answer is always yes.

At the end of this years parade it was Joel Grigg who played at the laying of the wreaths and he played a really great rendition of ‘Mist Covered mountains’ a truly amazing slow air.

If you would like to contact the band to play at any event or if you would like to come along and learn either the pipes or drums please contact:
