Meet the Team
Media & Broadcast Director - Andy Cracknell
Hello Everyone -
It great to finally be able to bring to you a project we've been working on for a while. Military parades and ceremonies have always been a passion of mine and I think it is important that as many people as possible get to know about these. As Vice-Chairman and Deputy Standard Bearer of The Royal British Legion - Felixstowe Branch I feel that ceremonies, parade and military awareness should be promoted as much as possible.
If you feel we should be covering something or you would like to be involved, please get in touch via the contact page. We'd love to hear from you.

I attended my first military event at the age of 4 by my Father and Godparents. The were working on The Royal Tournament and not only did I have the great privilege of watching the show for ten consecutive years but I was also take backstage. From that day to this, I have been a huge supporter of military ceremonial events. I have had the honour of attending rehearsals and special performances of some of the worlds most famous military events and talking to many of the masterminds behind these culturally important performances. Not only is it fantastic to see what my country does best, but it is also a huge privilege to get a glimpse into the cultures of other nations as they show off what they do best. Military tattoos and ceremonial spectacles show off these skills in a way that no other form of entertainment does and I am very proud to be involved with "Ceremonial News" which will promote and support these great traditions.
I am also in the process of producing a series of tattoos (watch this space) and I am also busy forming a new Robert Burns Club through The Robert Burns World Federation to celebrate the works of this great poet....this will also be a nice excuse for me to work with some great pipers and drummers...and have a dram or two in the process!

I’ve been around the military for my entire life and for the first 15 years moved around many times with my parents. My Dad was in the RAF which gave me the chance to see lots of different things, including a near private Vulcan display at RAF Finningley at about 6 in the morning, and a wonderful 3 years in Germany.
I am the Memberships Secretary & Webmaster for the Huntingdon Branch of The Royal British Legion, which is my way of giving back to the forces community as I’m unfortunately not able to serve. I’m also very honoured to be one of the branch Standard Bearers, carrying the Huntingdonshire District Standard.
I’m looking forward to working as part of the team and bringing you all the ceremonial news from Cambridgeshire.
