Caroline Flint joined Rosie Winterton MP, Mayor Ros Jones and Civic Mayor Linda Curran and dignitaries to celebrate Armed Forces Day.
The MPs and the borough's Mayors watched the parade of veterans, Army Reservists and cadets march past the Mansion House, followed by an assembly in the Market Square.
Said Caroline: "This is a day of thanks to all those who serve in our forces today, and also to those who served in the past. We could not have had a finer day for this special event."
Armed Forces Day was created in 2006 by the Labour Government as an annual event to thank our Armed Services.

Caroline Flint and Civic Mayor Linda Curran joined Cllr Phil Cole and Edlington Town Mayor Keri Anderson to celebrate a £301,755 grant from the National Lottery Community Fund.
The MP and councillors were joining residents for the Edlington Great Get Together, hosted by the Hill Top Centre, which included a performance by A Choired Taste, a new Edlington choir making their first public appearance.
Said Caroline: “The Great Get Together was a fantastic day and the new grant secured, after a year of preparation by Leigh Calladine, the Trustees and Hill Top Centre staff, guarantees the work of this centre for another five years.”
Said Cllr Phil Cole “The new grant secured by the Hill Top Centre is a great reward for all their hard work. Communities projects like the Hill Top Centre and ECO are doing more than ever to support this village. I’m very proud of the work they do.”

Don Valley MP Caroline Flint has written to Jeremy Corbyn urging Labour to “remain a party of the whole nation” and to respect the outcome of the 2016 referendum.
26 Labour MPs, including several prominent Yorkshire MPs, have signed a joint letter.
Commenting on the letter, Ms Flint said: “This is fundamentally about democracy. The country voted to leave the EU. They have a right to trust that MPs will implement the decision – a promise both Labour and the Conservative made at the general election less than a year after the referendum.
“I want to look my voters in the eyes and say ‘I tried my best to get Parliament to honour the decision to leave.’
“To hold a second referendum will cause huge anger and distrust of politicians, that they don’t keep their promises; their words mean nothing.
“Why should leave voters have to vote twice to see the decision honoured, but those voting remain only need to win once. Any decision by Labour to back a second referendum will drive a wedge between my party and many voters who have backed Labour their whole lives.
“All the MPs are asking is that we implement the decision to leave; and do so in an orderly way by supporting the best deal we can. Once we have done so, Labour can get back to the campaigning on many issues: policing, health, jobs, and poverty that do not get a hearing at the moment."
