Parade cancelled

FORMER Royal Marines who are members of The Royal Marines Association and/or the 45 Commando Association had planned to attend a memorial parade in Edinburgh to remember Thomas Peck Hunter VC who was mortally wounded storming a machine gun post during the Second World War.

The Thomas Peck Hunter parade was due to take place on Sunday (April 3), and a bus had been organised for transport.

However, this year’s event has been cancelled due to the Hibs and Hearts football derby taking place just over the road from the memorial parade ground. An alternative date will be discussed at the next association meeting.
