Emsworth played host to Thorney Island’s 12 Regiment and 47 Regiment Royal Artillery yesterday (Tuesday, April 23).

Troops were greeted with an electric atmosphere and a whole host of well-wishers waving red and white flags to mark St George’s Day.

Emsworth businesses also got into the St George’s Day spirit with decorated bunting lining their eye-catching shop fronts.

Residents from all generations took to Emsworth’s streets to see the procession, some of whom had visited from Emsworth House Nursing and Residential Care Home.

Havant borough councillor Brendan Gibb-Gray said: “It is a wonderful opportunity to say thank you to the veterans of the Korean war in their 60th anniversary.”
