The Remembrance Sunday Parade, Eye, Suffolk - 11th November 2018

It's 100 years since the end of the First World War, and so the Remembrance Parade has some added significance, which possibly explains the particularly good turnout. Harry's also marching in the parade with his Beavers gang, as it does its traditional route up to the church and back to the town hall.
