Remembrance Day Service and Parade

Lucy & I attended the Hereford city Remembrance Service and Parade at the city war memorial on 10th November.  The Act of Remembrance was led by Col. Andy Taylor OBE DL, the Rifles County Colonel.  Lord Lieutenant was represented by Bob Tabor DL, who laid the first wreath at the end of the two minutes’ silence and the reveille.  Others followed, representing the full range of the armed services, the emergency services, the Royal British Legion and many others.

After the service, which was led by the Revd Andy Morgan, the assembled servicemen and women marched up St Owen Street and dismissed.  It was a dignified and well-managed event, an appropriate tribute to those who had given their lives in wars.
