Paul Jasper, of the organising committee, was delighted to get the celebrations underway tonight – and hopes Wearside will come out in force over the weekend.
He said: “This is not armed forces celebrating armed forces.“The main thing is the celebratory aspect.”On the organisation behind the three-day event, Mr Jasper added: “A lot of hard work goes into organising the weekend.“It took us 11 months to organise this one.“We just want to do our bit to celebrate our armed forces.”Janice Procter, whose son, Michael Tench, was killed while serving in Iraq in 2007, is also on the organising committee.

A teenage army cadet who had his hair cut for an armed forces event has been ordered to stay in school isolation until it grows back.
