Remembrance Day

13 November 2022

Our residents today joined in with the Remembrance Sunday Parade down to the Petwyn Memorial in West Moors.

David, who was an Engineer in the Navy, said it was wonderful to see so many people of all ages coming to show their support for those lost during battle. Trevor regaled tales of American Soldiers from a nearby base giving local children rides in their Jeeps. These memories were triggered when on our way home from the parade, we came across an American Jeep, such as the ones that were used at that time! West Moors looked beautiful, decorated with hundreds of crocheted poppies, we were pleased to see the odd purple poppy representing the brave animals who also served during the war.
