More than 50 RAF members took part in the march, which included a wreath-laying ceremony and a parade through the centre of Stafford, in remembrance of local lives lost in the legendary aerial battle of World War II.
Hundreds of locals of all ages lined the route, cheering as the parade passed by.
Stafford Mayor, Councillor Bryan Cross, addressed the parade at the end of the March, which began in Earl Street and ended in Victoria Square.
The Freedom March followed a Battle of Britain Commemoration Service held at St. Mary's church earlier that morning.
