Despite the chilly weather, hundreds of residents turned out to welcome Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall as she attended the RAF Halton Inaugural Freedom Parade through Thame Town Centre.

Recently, on the seventh anniversary of her marriage to The Prince of Wales, The Duchess was appointed by The Queen to be a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order (GCVO), for personal services.

AS their Honorary Air Commodore, The Duchess received the Freedom Scroll on behalf of RAF Halton before they demonstrated their right to bear arms in Thame by marching through the streets, bayonets fixed, colours flying, drums beating and band playing.

Even RAF Halton Mascot, George the goat, seemed to be enjoying himself!

It was fantastic to see such a turnout from people of all ages, it was a real show of support for the Armed Forces. RAF Halton, by marching through the streets of Thame with bayonets fixed, colours flying, drums beating and band playing, demonstrated their right to bear arms in Thame.

The parade also allows them to thank the people of Thame for the support they show to themselves and the Armed Forces in general, at a time when they are deployed on operations across the globe.
