Military march and celebration to mark Commonwealth Day in Chippenham. Monday March 9 2015.

Soldiers from 9 Theatre Logistic Regiment of the Royal Logistic Corps will march through Chippenham formally to mark Commonwealth Day.
The march will be one of the highlights of a day of colourful events being organised by Chippenham Town Council and the regiment to celebrate Commonwealth Day officially for the first time.
The regiment, based at Buckley Barracks in Hullavington, is one of the most culturally diverse regiments in the British Army and has more than 800 personnel. It holds the Freedom of Chippenham and is exercising its right to march through the town centre to celebrate its Commonwealth links on Commonwealth Day.
Mayor John Scragg will raise the Commonwealth flag at the Town Hall and read the Commonwealth Affirmation following which 300 troops will begin their march through the town centre led by their regimental band.
Officers, soldiers and their families, representing communities from Fiji, the Caribbean, India, Africa and Gurkha soldiers from Nepal, will be showcasing their cultures and traditions through food, costumes, music and dance at a Commonwealth fair in the Neeld Hall which is free and open to everyone.
Chief executive Sue Wilthew said: “Chippenham feels a great affinity for many Commonwealth countries largely due to our links with the regiment. We are delighted to be joining forces with them to celebrate Commonwealth Day and to help promote greater understanding of the diversity and culture of many of the countries represented in the regiment.
“We’ve been delighted by the enthusiasm of our friends from 9 Regiment to work with us on this new venture for Chippenham. We hope people will come along on the day to support the march and enjoy the wonderful activities going on in the Neeld Hall too.”
