The salute was taken by Castle Mound, where the parade then travelled past the Swan Hotel, across the High Street, round St. Paul’s Square and on to Harpur Square, where participants assembled for inspection before being dismissed.

Bedford Mayor Dave Hodgson and Bedfordshire Lord Lieutenant Helen Nellis were among those who laid wreaths on the memorial.
