TWO men who have been friends for more than 80 years will be standing shoulder to shoulder once more this Sunday.

Frank Fieldsend from Market Rasen and Tom Walkley from Caistor will be taking part in the Freedom Parade in Grimsby to welcome the crew of minehunter HMS Grimsby back to the town.

Both men served in the Royal Navy Patrol Service during the Second World War and it is as members of the RNPS Association that they will be marching.
