    The service is held at the War Memorial in Bedworth’s Coventry Road Cemetery in the presence of the Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire representing H.M.The Queen, the Mayor of Nuneaton and Bedworth, invited dignitaries and guests, the citizens of Bedworth and the surrounding towns, and supporters from all over the country who travel just to “be there” on the day.
    The parade marches through Bedworth town centre before forming up in the Cemetery for the Armistice service; after which the parade marches along the Rye Piece Ringway where the salute is taken, wheeling left at the Pin Island to re-enter the pedestrian zone and dismisses at The Alms Houses.

     

    The Committee invite all ex-service personnel and all Ex-Service Associations, especially the Standards, to attend the 2019 event.  Building on the huge success of the 2017 parade, which was truly amazing, this promises to be a massive parade, one of the biggest ever. We would be pleased to have as many National, County and Area Standards as possible.
