We Will Remember Them

Sunday November 13 saw a large crowd gather at the war memorial in Billericay High Street to commemorate the fallen in our town's Act of Remembrance.

A moving service was conducted by past member of the club Rev.  Paul Carr of the Team Ministry of Billericay, with a parade by members of the Army and Air Force cadet forces, Scouts, Guides, Cubs, Brownies and other local organisations.

The sounding of the Last Post was followed by two minutes silence, and following a reading from the bible, Psalm 46 and prayers, the laying of wreaths on the War Memorial started with the High Sheriff of Essex.  President Mike Sinclair represented the club in the presence of other club members Bert French, Ed Harrison, Patrick Rothon, Malcolm Acors, Keith Wood, Peter Greene, Ben Clark and our own WWII veteran Norman Wilson.  Mike laid our wreath alongside Sri Srivastava from Billericay Mayflower Club, and Community Services Chairman Keith Wood laid a wreath on behalf of the Reading Rooms where he serves as President.

A fine day and a moving one - ending with the National Anthem and a closing prayer.
