Friends' Remembrance Day event Sunday 14th November

Just a brief reminder about the Friends' Remembrance Day event, Sunday 14th November from 11am.

Please gather at the Ladywell Cemetery Cross of Remembrance for the 11am 2minute Silence.

After a wreath has been laid, we will walk to the grave of David Jones, poet, for a brief introduction about his great war poem "In Parenthesis". We will then walk to near the grave of Commander Buckle DSO 3 bars, for a short resume of his wartime achievements. Then to the Deptford "Zeppelin" Memorial, commemorating the deaths of civilians in airship bombings - we hope to be joined by the great grandson of one of the families affected. This memorial is close to the Brockley Cemetery War Memorial, where the second wreath will be laid. A short poem will be read at each wreath-laying.

And thank you to all who attended the "Up the Line" Armistice event on Thursday.
