The British Veterans' Group (BVG) had some of its members take part in this year's Royal British Legion's Service of Remembrance Parade in Whitehall, London.

Amongst the BVG's contingent were the party's Veterans Officer, Pete Molloy and National Organiser, Adam Walker.

This was the first time for both gentlemen to participate in such a prestigious event.

Mr Walker said "It was really a humbling experience to be part of this parade and being in the same company of great men and women."

It was estimated that 10,000 veterans took part in the march past and they were applauded by the thousands of people that lined the streets.

The BVG's wreath was laid by Mr Molloy.

Mr Molloy said "It filled me with great pride to be on the same parade with other veterans, especially the Chelsea Pensioners and the next time the BVG takes part we will increase our numbers."
