A short ceremony of remembrance will be held at 11.00 am on Remembrance Sunday at the Tarrant Monkton War Memorial, at which a bugler will play the Last Post and a wreath laid. The purpose of the ceremony is to remember not only the sacrifices of the past, but also to honour those who have been killed in action much more recently. This year is of special significance, being the 100th anniversary (to the day) of the Armistice that ended the First World War.
We very much hope that you will be able to join us at 10.50 am at the War Memorial on Sunday 11 November (after the 10.30am Commemoration Service in the village church) and for the Curry Lunch afterwards at 12.15 pm in the Village Hall, in aid of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity and the Royal Marines Charity, who are doing so much today for our injured servicemen and women. To mark the 100th anniversary, lunch will be followed by a short film about what actually happened on the final day of the ‘war to end all wars,’ followed by some readings of letters and poems written at the time.
Tickets (£12 per head) for the Curry Lunch (bring your own drinks) are available from either of us. The majority of the proceeds will be divided between the two charities. Please let either of us know if you would like to attend by Wednesday 31 October and we will sell you a ticket – do try and come!
