The East Riding Council voted to grant the Defence School of Transport the freedom of the East Riding in recognition of their long standing association with the people of the East Riding and in recognition of their devoted service to Queen and country with the special privilege, honour and distinction of marching through the streets of Beverley with bayonets fixed, colours flying and bands playing.
“I am delighted that the Defence School of Transport will once again take centre stage in Beverley and I would ask the public to join us and line the streets to welcome our servicemen and women into the Town as they enter through the Medieval North Bar, before marching into Saturday Market Place”.
Commandant DST, Colonel Rob Peacock said;
“The officers and other ranks from the Royal Marines, Army and Royal Air Force serving at DST really appreciate and value the honour of having the Freedom of the East Riding. It is a great opportunity for us to show our gratitude to the people of the East Riding for their past and ongoing support, especially on Armed Forces Day.”
