RAAF Number 25 'City of Perth' Freedom of Entry
Watch RAAF Number 25 'City of Perth' Squadron, in full panoply with swords drawn, drums beating, band playing and colors flying at Forrest Place as part of their Freedom of Entry through the City of Perth.
The granting of Freedom of Entry is the highest accolade a town or city can bestow upon a group or individual. It is an honor given by a local council to a military unit, in recognition of their exceptional service to the City. This allows them the freedom to parade through the city and it is an affirmation of the bond between the regiment and the citizenry.
Featuring 50 members of the Number 25 ‘City of Perth’ Squadron, the crew will request to enter the City as part of an ancient Freedom of Entry privilege being granted by the City of Perth.
Stepping off in Hay Street mall at approx. 11:45am, the Parade will move along Hay Street Mall to the Perth Town Hall where a challenge will be performed prior to forming up in Cathedral Square.
There will be formalities and a ceremony conducted at Cathedral Square which dignitaries and members of the public are invited to witness.
