Friends of Victoria Park laid a wreath at the cenotaph in the Park on Sunday 13 November.
Despite the wet weather, two dozen people turned out and were welcomed by our Chair Richard East.
Gillian Mawdsley who read the salutation also recalled two soldiers from the local area who died at war - Frederick O'Beine of Broomhill who died in November 1917 at Bourlon Wood and Alan Walker Souter, a parishioner of Balshagray Victoria Church who died on 11 September 1944.
Before two minutes silence, the Last Post was beautifully played by young trumpeter Euan Black (17) followed by The Rouse.
We would like to establish a service at the beautiful Cenotaph in the park as an annual event. If your family lost a relative in war who grew up around the park, we would love to know more about them and give them a special mention in next year’s service.
