Freedom of Purbeck

Come and see the Armed Forces march through the streets of Wareham on Friday 24 June 2016

In 2010, Purbeck District Council was honoured to present the honour of the Freedom of Purbeck to the Armour Centre and to the Old Boys' Association of the Junior Leaders' Regiment, Royal Armoured Corps. The Freedom of the District is one of the highest honours a local authority can bestow.

This means that the Garrison has the right to march through the district. They wish to exercise this right on Friday 24 June 2016, which will coincide with the Centenary of Bovington developing during The Great War in 1915/16 into the UK home base for the Tanks and Armoured Vehicles of the British Army.
