Remembrance Sunday 2006

Remembrance Day Service 2006

There was the largest turnout in many years, at the Remembrance Day Service held at the war memorial at the village crossroads on Sunday 12th November 2006. In a moving ceremony, Rev. Nelva Moss prayed for and then read out the names of those from the village who had died in both World Wars.

A two minute silence was followed by the laying of two wreaths, the first by Jim McDougall, aged 86, a Dunkirk veteran, who served in the 77th Highland Field Regiment, RA. The second was laid by Mr Clive Dytor, Headmaster of The Oratory School, who saw action in the Falklands War, during which he was awarded the Military Cross.
