The Lord Mayor of Exeter and the Lord Lieutenant of Devon, Eric Dancer, are "raising the flag" at 11.00am at Exeter's Guildhall to show support for the country's military community both serving and retired, at home and abroad and including the cadet forces. The ceremony will mark the start of a Grand Parade through the City Centre including the bands of Her Majesty's Royal Marines,6 Rifles and the Corps of Drums from the Devon Army Cadet Force marching together with representatives from all three services. At 12 noon there will be a free programme of military music and static displays on Cathedral Green culminating in the spectacular Beating Retreat at 1.45pm. Collections will be made throughout the day on behalf of Devon's Armed Forces.
