REMEMBRANCE DAY 2016

This year we decided to try a different church venue for our Remembrance Day Service.

St John the Baptist Church, where we held our National Corps Day Service in April, is a beautiful little church with a really friendly atmosphere in Cardiff city centre.

Marilyn & I were the only two from the Branch able to attend this year. We were greeted like old friends by those we had met previously in April, and the rest of the congregation were equally as welcoming. 

We were included in the Act of Remembrance and proudly laid the QA wreath alongside others. We were surprised, during the reading of the names of local war veterans, to hear the name, “Edith Cavell”. Nobody, however, appeared to know how she was connected to the church, a topic for research! 

Vanessa, the lady who arranged our flowers for Corps Day, showed that this was not her only talent, as her beautiful voice rang out when she led some of the responses during the service. 

Mike, the organist, went out of his way to make the Service extra special for us by playing our Corps March at the end.

Afterwards we joined everyone for coffee & cake and interesting chats with the congregation members.

Remembrance Wreaths were laid in other venues by Branch members. In Talgarth two of our members laid wreaths at the War Memorial. Jacqui Wilding, in her capacity as Lord Mayor of Talgarth laid one on behalf of the Town Council, and Valmai Davies for the QA Association.

Other members went to celebrate with our larger family at the Cenotaph in London.
