PICTURE SPECIAL - South Warwickshire remembers

Leamington Editorial 14th Nov, 2022   0

THOUSANDS gathered across the county to pay their respects to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country.

In towns and villages across Warwickshire, people lined the streets and gathered at the town’s respective war memorials for services on both Armistice Day (November 11) and Remembrance Sunday (November 13).

Parades featuring veterans and members of many county, town and village organisations saw wreaths laid and the traditional silent tribute to remember the fallen.

An Armistice Day Service was held at Warwick’s War Memorial on Remembrance Day (Friday) with the Warwick mayor Parminder Birdi Singh laying at wreath on behalf of all residents.

In Alcester on Remembrance Sunday, the town’s Royal British Legion led a Remembrance Sunday Parade through the town centre, followed by a Remembrance Service at St Nicholas Church.

Parades were also held in Kenilworth, Leamington, Shipston, Stratford and Warwick.

For this year’s Poppy Appeal, the Royal British Legion specifically commemorated both military and civilian service to the nation – following the pandemic, when members of the military served side-by-side with civilians to help administer support to the community and deliver the vaccine rollout.
