Warrant Officer Larry Parker has returned from Belgium after participating in the 4-Day Ijzer March for the 8th time and has walked over 1000 km. during this time. Unable to take cadets with him this year he decided to mark the occasion by being sponsored for H 4 H the Squadrons chosen charity for 2010.

Having now completed the challenge he is busy collecting in the sponsor money which is in the region of £1000.

This year he walked with the International Friendship Team which is made up of military reservists and serving members from Belgium, Germany, France, Holland and Great Britain.

WO Parker said ‘The International Team was welcomed by all with the flags all flying together. The true spirit of the team was shown when we participated in a memorial ceremony in the German Cemetery at Vladslo, all countries united in remembering the fallen who gave their lives so we could live in peace”
