Remembrance Day 2021
On Sunday 14th November our Remembrance Service took place attended by members of the public and Armed Forces. The Honorary Chaplain to NRHQ RA led the Service and wreaths were laid on behalf of Civil Authorities, Military Units and private persons. Tributes were read to remember two persons. Firstly Jock Campbell who was awarded the Victoria Cross for his actions in North Africa in 1941 but died in 1942. Then locally born Lance Corporal Jake Alderton who joined the Royal Engineers and served in Afghanistan where he tragically died aged just 22. Members of Jake's family were in attendance to honour his memory. The Service ended with the Kohima Epitaph "When you go home Tell them of us and say For your tomorrow We gave our today"
