June 17th: Wellington Rifles


Somerset's County Regiment, The Rifles, will be honoured with the Freedom of Wellington in a civic ceremony that will include marching through Wellington with flags flying and bayonets fixed!! There will be other attractions in Wellington park on the day such as military displays and re-enactments, along with stalls from local traders, to celebrate Armed Forces Day.

An excellent photo opportunity (although you might prefer to employ telephoto lenses to stay well clear of those bayonets!).

The day runs from 10:30-16:30, with the Freedom of the Town presentation around 2pm. See for other details
