Armistice Day  -November 11th 2013

We attended the armistice day ceremony at the Menin Gate again this year, and also travelled down to the Somme area in France in order to lay a plaque at the Thiepval Memorial on behalf of Brimington.   The parade and ceremony at Ypres was very well attended with groups from all over the commonwealth and beyond joining the march from     St Georges Memorial Church to head through the streets of the town and to Menin Gate.
