Founder's Day 2020 - Tilshead

On Saturday 22nd February, Society members, representatives from the AAC and Parachute Regiment and members of the public gathered to commemorate the 78th Anniversary of the founding of the Regiment. The day was very windy and cold, but was at least dry.

This year, in addition to the remembrance service at the Memorial Stones, two new benches were installed. One is situated outside the village hall and dedicated to the Parachute Regiment. The other, next to the memorial stones is dedicated to the late Brigadier Maurice Sutcliffe OBE, the last commanding officer of the Glider Pilot Regiment. It was a delight to have members of his family present.
