Lieutenant Lee Godwin Royal Navy, Parade Commander

Upholding this tradition and playing a central part in the day, RNAS Culdrose personnel marched on completion of the packed Church service. 

At the head of the parade was HMS Seahawk Volunteer Band followed by platoons of sailors from Culdrose, Sea Cadets, the Royal Naval Association and other Veterans groups from the region. 

The Parade Commander, Lieutenant Lee Godwin Royal Navy said, “It was a great privilege to be part of such an historic event and to be so very well received by the community of Madron.” 

Petty Officer Colin ‘Buster’ Brown of Culdrose was the Naval Colour Bearer. He also felt proud to be representing the Royal Navy, “It was great to hear the applause from the locals and to be thanked for parading, it was a real honour.”

The Parade was very well received with applause and words of gratitude from the locals of Madron. They commented on how smart the sailors looked and what an honour it was to have them as part of the Parade.

The Commanding Officer of RNAS Culdrose, Captain Danny Captain Dan Stembridge ADC, and his wife were also present. They too felt privileged to be there and appreciated the smart turn out of the Royal Naval personnel.
