Alex Easton MLA finally receives a date for the freedom of the Borough to honour the Territorial Army units from Northern Ireland after his named proposal to NDBC.
Speaking today Alex Easton MLA
As promised by me through a Notice of Motion at NDBC there will be a Freedom of The Borough Parade to honor the Northern Ireland Units of the Territorial Army led by 591 Independent Field Squadron Royal Engineers from Bangor on Saturday the 8th of June.
“This is the highest honor we at North Down Borough Council can bestow on anyone in the Borough and is In recognition of the fact that many of our Northern Ireland Territorial Units have served in combat in such places such as Iraqi and Afghanistan to protect us from terrorism. I hope that the residents of North Down make the huge effort to come out in their thousands to show their support and appreciation to our brave solders, and to cheer on 591 Independent Field Squadron Royal Engineers from Bangor who will lead the way for the Territorial Army.
