The Western Isles Police Scotland Youth Volunteers (PSYV) joined the local community in Stornoway yesterday (Monday 26 June, 2017) for the Armed Forces Day parade and lowing of the flag in the town centre.

The 10 youth volunteers helped at the parade and assisted officers with road closures, ensuring the area was safe for the parade to pass through.

Adult Volunteer Tom Danks and six of the youth volunteers had the privilege of being invited to march on the parade and took up position behind the Army and RAF cadets.

PSYV Co-ordinator PC Rick Henderson said: "Despite having only begun marching during their induction course, the youth volunteers did the PSYV Western Isles group proud and were brilliant in their drill movements.

"It was an honour for our youth volunteers to be invited to join their peers in the parade and a pleasure to support the Western Isles Armed Forces Day parade. They also met Her Majesty's Lord Lieutenant Donald Martin where they discussed their experiences along with cadets from the Army and RAF at 7 Scots Drill Hall."
