    I hope everybody was upstanding for the national anthem.

    Yeah. Whatever happened to those military parades and tatoos we used to have. Does such a thing even exist these days?
    I know the Navy phased out the field gun run when I was there, I think I got to see it for the last time at HMS Drake.
    The police used to have a fun day in Essex too, it was like a show of technology plus there were other organisations there too such as the fire brigade and army. It was a good way for the public to take an interest in what the police were doing.

    Aye... I went to an Army open day at a base with the school once. It was so good!

    Shame, those prades and that, I can only watch videos now. I think only North Korea and China still do em, maybe Vietnam. I want to visit China the next time they have a parade! It'd be really awesome to stand in Tiananmen square and watch the Tanks roll by... and the nukes... and the Anti Air and all that lark.

    Britain should do some. Get some national pride going again! Maybe even show off the Euro Fighter...
