Posted on July 30, 2018

Over 200 officers and soldiers including a mounted contingent and working dogs from  the 1st Military Working Dog Regiment based at St George’s Barracks, North Luffenham took part, led by the Chief Veterinary Officer, Lt Col Neil Smith. The salute was taken by the Colonel Commandant of the Royal Army Veterinary Corps, Major General Roly Walker and music was provided by the Bands of the Royal Signals and the Army Medical Services.  Members of the RAVC Association and the Melton Branch of The Royal British Legion also joined the marching troops. Mayor Pru Chandler from Melton Borough Council said: “The RAVC has played a huge part in local life in Melton Mowbray for many years and we are extremely honoured to celebrate their centenary.  Many of our families in the borough have friends and relatives who have seen active service, so it is our privilege to recognise the work of our local military personnel who risk their lives to serve our country.”
