Centenary Parade

Following the Centenary Conference of the Frontiersmen on Saturday 23rd April 2005, a Centennial Service was held at the Church of St. Botolph Without Bishopsgate, London on the following day at 2 p.m. by kind permission of the Rector. In attendance was the Patron of the Legion of Frontiersmen (Countess Mountbatten’s Own), The Countess Mountbatten. Mounted Frontiersmen from Britain and Canada had ridden through London from the Royal Mews and led a march of the Frontiersmen through the City of London to the Guildhall Yard, where the Colours were Trooped and the Parade inspected by The Countess Mountbatten. Here are some photographs of this historical and inspiring day. More photographs of the event will be added in due course. In attendance were Frontiersmen from very many countries including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, The United States of America and Portugal. An organisation founded one hundred years ago due to the patriotism and community spirit of one man, Roger Pocock, has proved its worth and continues to do so.
