Remembrance Day 2011
Sunday November 13th saw one of the best attended Remembrance Day parades in Amble for quite a long time. It was an honour to have Mr C Hedley (Northumberland Fusiliers,) our last remaining Far East Prisoner of War representative, laying the FEPOW wreath with Peter Keen.
Salute to the memorial was very impressive WELL DONE GIRLS!
I think that the significance of the initial laying order of the wreaths must be mentioned; the Royal British Legion and FEPOW were followed by the Royal Navy and RAF, then the Veterans Associations; 15/19th Kings Royal Hussars, Northern Ireland Veterans and South Atlantic Medal associations, followed by the Army Cadets and Girl Guides, all signifying the past, the present and the future generations!
My Regiment’s Motto is MEREBIMUR which means We Shall Be Worthy, – today Amble was worthy! We will remember them.
