Exeter march marks presentation to C Company.

LOCAL army cadets have marched through the centre of Exeter to mark the presentation of new banners to the Devon Army Cadet Force.

C Company cadets from Barnstaple, Bideford, South Molton, Ilfracombe, Torrington and Holsworthy joined a 550-strong parade watched by hundreds of spectators.

They were led to the Cathedral Green by their Corps of Drums and commandant Colonel Ashley Fulford.

The new banners are similar and have the same significance as ‘colours’ do to a regular army regiment.

They were presented by the Lord Lieutenant Devon Sir Eric Dancer, who saluted the new banners while the old banners were marched off to the sound of Auld-Lang-Syne.

North Devon was represented by Barnstaple Mayor Cllr Lesley Brown and deputy Cllr Valerie Elkins.
