Auckland Charter Parade 2012

A recent ceremony in Auckland saw swords drawn, bayonets fixed and ceremonial flags flown high to mark 75 years of the RNZAF. At the Town Hall the Mayor of Auckland presented a new Auckland Charter to the RNZAF.

The custom of granting freedom of a city through a Charter dates back to the middle ages but these days the granting of the freedom of a city is a way for a civic authority to express a close relationship with the military.
