Standard Bearers Visit to the House of Parliament

On Wed 4 May 16 Standard Bearers and other RBL, Regular and Reserve Forces personnel from around the Lincoln area visited the Palace of Westminster.

After a very interesting tour of the Houses of Parliament we were met by Mr Carl McCartney, MP for Lincoln, who presided over a lively question and answer session along with Mr Martin Vickers, MP for Cleethorpes. We then enjoyed lunch on the terrace overlooking the River Thames. Joining us were Col Bob Stewart, MP for Beckenham and Dr Julian Lewis, MP for New Forest East and Chairman of the Defence Select Committee. Overall, it was a very enjoyable day with plenty to interest everyone.

Thanks go to members of 160 Tpt Sqn RLC who drive the minibuses to London and back, to Mr McCartney and his staff for hosting the visit and to Mr Stav Meledes, Lincoln Parade Marshal, for organising the visit.
