Troops from the Royal Engineers (170 Infrastructure Support Engineer Group) will parade from Cathedral Green to a marching band. At the Council House they will give a Royal Salute to the Lord Lieutenant and their Commander, Colonel Gavin Hatcher OBE, commanding officers, The Mayor of Derby and High Sherriff, followed by the National Anthem.
To mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, a special commemorative medal will be awarded to serving frontline members of the police, fire, emergency services, prison services and the Armed Forces. Acting as a token of the nation’s thanks, the Platinum Jubilee Medal follows a long history of awarding medals to mark Royal Jubilees, with the first one awarded to mark the 50th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s reign in 1887.
The ceremonies will be broadcast live on the Big Screens in the Market Place.
