21st Signal Regiment Return

This week saw a homecoming parade in Leicester, and a similar one in Bath. My oldest lad, Liam, is in the 21st Signal Regiment and they’ve all returned safely from Afghanistan. The ceremony at Bath Abbey was quite amazing – I’ve never been in a church with so many people before.

 

Panorama

This panorama doesn’t do the Regiment (or the Abbey) full justice. There is a technical tip here – if you’re creating panoramas, it’s much easier if people stay in their places! I had to take the pictures before the service started.

The freedom of the city speech by the Mayor of Bath was incredible. “My city is now your city”.

If you click on the picture above, you’ll be taken to the full resolution panorama which you can then download.

The following link will take you to a video of the parade on Vimeo

The original video will soon be available for download (possibly from a Skydrive) – it’s way too big to stream from Vimeo. Sorry about the aspect, but I’m able to get steadier pictures if I shoot vertical rather than horizontal. (Room for improvement there then!)
