Members of the RMA many of whom are in the cast of next year’s Sgts Mess Panto, took part in the Deal Carnival on Thursday the 25th July, alongside their family and friends.
A large contingent of veteran Royal Marine Band Service members formed up toward the front of the carnival, led by Derek Lindars as Drum Major in loco. Close behind, the ‘Hairy Putter and the Pussy of Doom’ float aka the ‘Pigwarts Express’ was pulled by the infamous corps de ballet. Sadly, as the procession started the heavens opened and everyone got a thorough drenching, however this did not stop the traditional rest stop at the RMA for a tot to keep everyone going, and the excellent music to keep everyone moving along the route.
