ARMISTICE DAY WREATHS LAID IN REMEMBRANCE CEREMONY


XXXX XXX XXX.

The two photographs above show first, the wreaths laid on the alter steps of the Parish Church with the Royal British Legion Standard draping the altar, taken during the Remembrance Service and then below, the same wreaths after being carried down Mill Street, ceremonially laid on our village War Memorial adjacent to Cowley Park.
The Revd Sharon Miles, Priest in Charge of our Parish, addressed the congregation on this special day. She spoke of those who had died during the two World Wars and those who, even today, were losing their lives in the service of their Country.


She referred to the problems of those left behind and those injured during military service and how the Royal British Legion, with money raised by the sale of poppies, gave assistance towards their needs. Today’s collection she said would be given to the R.B.L.


The Royal British Legion Standard is carried aloft to be placed on the altar. Group flags from the youth of the Parish were also displayed on the altar


Ann Headworth, a member of the Clacton-on-Sea Cooperative Band played the Last Post to introduce the Two Minutes Silence, followed by sounding ‘Reveille’.


Basil Hutley reads ‘The Exhortation’ then following the Reveille he read the ‘Kohima Epitaph’.


The R.B.L. Standard pausing by the choir after being retrieved from the Altar before the service ends.


The Parish Church organist played an anthem as the congregation assembled then the following hymns as set out in the Order of Service for our Remembrance Sunday: “All people that on earth do dwell”; “All my hope in God is Founded”; “Eternal Father, strong to save”; “Praise to the Lord, the Almighty” and “God is our strength and refuge”. The service finished with all three verses of the National Anthem.


The youth colours retrieved from the altar.


The Choir lead the procession at the conclusion of the remembrance service.


Standing to await the formalities of the ceremony at the war memorial, are those chosen by the various organisations to lay remembrance wreaths. They have laid them earlier on the Church altar and now after they have been placed on the memorial they will stay for as long as wind and weather permits for all to see.

A section of those witnessing the wreath laying today, gathered around the edge of the memorial garden.
