Open to the Public:
10.00am to 1.00pm
11th November 2012 saw the Royal
Legion commemorate those who have died
in Wars and Conflicts past and present at Louth's annual Remembrance Sunday event. A
Wreath Laying service took place at Louth War Memorial from 10.30am
and the Mayor, Councillor Mrs. Jill Makinson-Sanders laid a Wreath on behalf of Louth Town Council.
Her guest for the morning,
serving Corporal Reuben Elliott, a Louth lad, home on leave, laid a wreath on
behalf of the Grenadier Guards to commemorate his fallen comrades. The
Bishop of Grimsby
said prayers at the War Memorial and Councillor Gus Robertson, the President of the Royal British Legion Louth Branch
said the Eulogy. Adam Barter played the bugle to begin and end a two minute
silence which provided a unique opportunity for us to reflect on lives lost
during all the Wars in which this country has fought.
Those assembled then paraded to St. James’ Church for Divine Service
the Bishop of Grimsby. Public support was magnificent. Louth Town Council would like to thank the British Legion Louth Branch, the Team
Parish of Louth, the drummers, the bugler, all those
parading uniformed services and all the youngsters who were in attendance as
their participation made the event the reverent and honourable occasion that the
brave servicemen and women who gave their lives for this Country deserve.
WE WILL REMEMBER
