What drives members of the public to complain about soldiers carrying guns
while on parade?
Army cadets have been left ‘bitterly disappointed’ after being banned from carrying rifles on a Remembrance Day parade - amid fears the weapons might 'upset' onlookers.
The young cadets have proudly marched with rifles for decades and around 100 had spent months fine-tuning the drill where they would showcase their skills.
But the cadets were left 'gutted' just days before the big event when military top brass cut the rifles from the display following complaints from members of the public.
They were warned the rifle display during the march in Plymouth, Devon, could be deemed as 'glamorising' weapons.
Cadets were left 'bitterly disappointed' by the late change, which organisers today branded 'political correctness gone mad'. . . . .
