Open to the Public:
10.00am to 1.00pm
was held on Sunday 11th November 2007 and the Royal
British Legion commemorated the end of World War I, II and other wars. A
Wreath Laying service took place at Louth War Memorial from 10.30am
and the Deputy Mayor laid a Wreath on behalf of Louth Town Council. This year in
a change to normal events there was a fly past by a Battle of Britain Plane at 10.40am. A two minute
silence was observed and this 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
highlight of which was the sermon given by the Bishop of Lincoln, who graced us
with his presence. Public support was magnificent and it went a long way to making the event more memorable.
Louth Town Council would like to thank the British Legion Louth Branch, the Team
Parish of Louth, the Bishop of Lincoln, 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
