Over two hundred Sailors and Airmen from Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose, in Cornwall marched through Helston on Thursday as part of a freedom march. The Annual Freedom of Helston march saw HMS Seahawk Band at the head of the parade with platoons of officers, ratings and a Colour party parading with the Queens Colour flanked by Sailors guarding the Ensign following behind.
– Councillor Jonathan Radford-Gaby, Mayor of Helston
HMS Seahawk has always played a big part in our community and it’s always a great pleasure to see the Freedom Parade. It is now part of the History of Helston.
HMS Seahawk was granted the Freedom of the Borough of Helston in 1958, and the air station annually exercises this right.
