BRITAIN'S top soldier is urging people to show their support for the Territorial Army at its centenary parade.

Thousands are expected to join in celebrating the Territorial Army's (TA) 100th birthday at Canterbury Cathedral this Saturday.

Chief of the General Staff General Sir Richard Dannatt and VC winner Lance Corporal Johnson Beharry will join serving and former soldiers at the festivities.

Sir Richard said: "For our soldiers to know that they are well supported at home means a great deal to them and encourages them to march ten feet tall."

Led by the Band of The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment, soldiers will march through Canterbury city centre and then attend a service at the cathedral.

Entry to the Cathedral service is by ticket only and very few places are left.

Veterans can apply by calling 01227 738800 or e-mailing Kentta100@allanwillett.org.
