Plymouth will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Commando Gunners with a military parade in the city centre. It is expected that serving troops from 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery and over 1000 veterans will march along the iconic Royal Parade, on Saturday 14 May 2022, exercising their Freedom of the City. Led by the Regiments’ colours, their towed guns; the parade will also include the marching band, British Army Band Sandhurst, plus vehicles and equipment used by the Regiment.
