Big Tree VFC Parade
In order to promote Big Tree’s activities and to show the community our firefighters, a parade unit was formed in 1938. The first uniform consisted of a white shirt, black tie and blue trousers. The uniform was quickly changed to suntan trousers with a green stripe, a green shirt trimmed suntan and a visor cap trimmed in green. In the early 1980’s the uniform was changed to green trousers with a gold stripe, as white short-sleeved shirt trimmed in green, and a white cap trimmed in green.
In the 1990’s we changed again to green trousers with green and gold stripes, a white long-sleeved shirt with green trim and green caps. In 2010, we mode our most recent upgrade. Our Class A “dress blues” consist of blue trousers with green and gold stripes, a white long-sleeved shirt, a blue double-breasted coat trimmed in green and gold and a blue cap.
When our Field Days were still running, it wasn’t uncommon to see Big Tree 35-40 times a parade season. Since we no longer have Field Days, we try to march5 – 10 times a year.
