The trouble with photographing a parade from the front is that you have to keep up with them while marching backwards
Eventually they reached the front of the church; the pipers peeled off into the car park and the standard bearers took their places before the lych gate. Here the standard bearer of the local Army Cadets faces the RSM while members of the community look on.
This is a severe crop from the centre of the frame. As with yesterday's image
there is also telephoto compression involved, less from the lens than from the effect of the crop: front to back is about 22 metres/25 yards.
Black & white only.
