WELL-KNOWN musical duo Peter Hickin and Tom Smith donned their uniforms on Saturday as their tribute to the national Armed Forces Day.

The pair played outside the town’s Co-op store for three hours and raised more than £150 for the Royal British Legion funds.

“It was a disgrace that nothing was done in the town to mark this important day,” said Mr Hickin, “so we decided to do our bit.

“And even in these hard times, people were very generous for this good cause.”

Members of the Tealby and Market Rasen Royal British Legion took part in the Armed Forces Day event in Cleethorpes, where thousands of people lined the parade route.
