A number of military bands took part in the parade.

The parade made its way to Stoke Park which quickly filled up with people (an early estimate being nearly 30,000) to see a wealth of static displays from the three armed forces, as well as flypasts, parachutists, as well as plenty of arena displays to please the crowds.

A detailed report will follow with more pictures, so please remember to log on to The Guildford Dragon NEWS again soon.
