Spanish Army to parade in Tameside? Errrr....apparently not.
But no. The truth is less colourful. It is in fact The MERCIAN Regiment which is parading (and very welcome they are by the way!).
Having had a cheap laugh at this typo there is a serious point to be made. In light of recent tragic events the army deserve our utmost support. The Regimental system is the backbone of the British Army. To misspell a regiment's name is disrespectful in the least. At worst it shows how little knowledge of a local regiment Cllr Taylor has.
But then again. This is a man who has his Christian name tattooed on his knuckles. So as to remember how to spell it?
