Armistice Day

Here are a few pictures of the brief ceremony held at the Warwick War Memorial on 11th November.

Prayers were led by the Rector of St. Mary’s, Vaughan Roberts. At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, when the guns fell silent at the end of WW1, the Last Post and Reveille were sounded by bugler Adam Thompson from Warwick School. The Mayor, Richard Edgington laid the wreath from the Town Council. 

This year is the centenary of the elegant memorial, unveiled before a huge crowd in 1921.

The full Remembrance Day service will be held on Sunday 14th November from 10am. followed by a parade through Warwick by local military units, community groups and civic dignitaries. 

A reminder that the personal stories of all the local service people who gave their lives in the two world wars can be found on Unlocking Warwick’s special website:
