29th September 2017 | Royal Visits to Surrey

Thousands line the streets for military parade, saluting staff of the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre.

Thousands lined the streets of Dorking as a military parade took place, complete with the Band of the Household Cavalry, to salute the staff of the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC) at Headley Court. The Centre closes in 2018 and moves to a much larger site, with state-of-the-art facilities, in Leicestershire. HRH The Countess of Wessex attended the Service of Thanksgiving at St Martin’s Church, then joined the March along Dorking High Street, before taking the Royal Salute. Headley Court has helped thousands of injured servicemen and women to recover from devastating combat injuries, both physical and mental. In his address, HM Lord-Lieutenant, Michael More-Molyneux said: “We thank all the regular staff and volunteers for their commitment to so many people. The veterans who are with us today remind us of their bravery in fighting for our country to keep us safe and free. Surrey is proud to have been home to the DMRC for 70 years.”
