Poppies for Remembrance Day

 

The Military Times is able to publicise your Armistice Day events if that would be of assistance to members of the British Legion, Parochial Church Councils, Old Comrades Associations, Cadet forces – anyone in fact. Please drop us a line and we can enter the dates and times in our diary of events.

This is, of course, such a special year, and it is a rather curious coincidence that the 100th anniversary of the end of the war should fall on a Sunday, making especially significant in many ways. The Great War was supposed to end all wars but, even if that turned out to be a forlorn hope, by remembering those who died then, or since, we might possibly make those who would start a future war stop and think it over one more time.

Please do support the Poppy sellers where you see them. Every single coin helps, no matter how small.

(With apologies to the Long Ashton Branch of The Legion for using their image without consulting them. We wanted a photo of a typical British Remembrance Day scene for that is what the day is all about – remembering people who left villages and towns all over the country and never returned.)

    Caterham in Surrey will be carrying out a Poppy Planting Ceremony on Saturday 10th of November at 10-00, over 200 children will be involved at St Mary’s Church in the town. Caterham Barracks was used in WW1 for recruit training before going off to war. On Sunday there will be the traditional Parade to the church from the RBL Club, along the route Poppies have the names of those who died during the Great War, in the evening will be the lighting of the beacon with prayers and music.
