The sounds of massed pipes can almost be heard now that plans are firmly in place for an annual services parade.
The Armed Forces and Emergency Services Day Parade commences at 1.30 p.m. on Saturday, June 6.
It will make its way from the Abbey Arch, through High Street and on to Victoria Park via John Street.
With backing from Angus Council the parade will include serving military personnel, veterans and cadets as well as the emergency services.
The aim of the parade is to celebrate and raise the awareness of Arbroath’s many links with the military and to enable the public to show their appreciation.
At 2 p.m. in Victoria Park the RM Condor Military Wives Choir will give a performance, followed by a spectacular display of a Pitts Special S2-A bi-plane in red and white livery at 2.30 p.m.
Stalls from many of the organisations will be in Victoria Park from 12 noon to give the public an insight into their work, see demonstrations and chat to personnel.
Fun side shows include a climbing frame and tutor cockpit, a static airplane display and vintage vehicles, and RAF Living History Group (638 Squadron) will set up a wartime camp with a Spitfire flight simulator.
