There will be parade of service personnel, veterans, standard bearers and cadets starting at 1115hrs on Drill Hall Road, Newport marching along the High Street to The Quay (Riverside) where the salute will be taken by the Lord-Lieutenant of the Isle of Wight Mrs Susie Sheldon, JP.

An all day programme is planned at The Quay, to include stalls, exhibitions, military vehicles and children's entertainment.

This is a day when the rest of us on the island can show our patriotic support for our service personnel, past and present throughout the country and our thanks for keeping us safe. One of the marks of any civilised nation is the way it supports and respects those who fight for our country, and their families.
