Lee Rigby 10th Anniversary Memorial, 21st May 2023
The Commemoration Service for Fusilier Lee Rigby took place at the Garrison on the morning of May 21st 2023, the day before the 10th Anniversary of his death.
It was a well-attended service bringing together representatives of the Army currently based at Woolwich as well as from the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, one of whom read moving tributes to Lee Rigby. There was also a large turn-out from both the Army and RAF Cadets.
The Leader of the Council and the Mayor laid wreaths at the end of the Service, as did the splendidly attired local Pearly King and Queen, on behalf of the Ride of Respect. A senior office of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers laid the first wreath.
A memorable sermon was preached by the Bishop of Woolwich and the Last Post and Revile played by 2 buglers of the Fusiliers Association. At the end of the Service all present went to the front of the Church to watch the Ride of Respect bikers tribute. This year there were over 2,000 bikers taking part.
