Remembrance Day in Hungerford 9th November 2014

It was early morning and Hungerford was bathed in beautiful sunshine. Everyone was getting ready for the Remembrance Day Parade.  The crowds came out early lining the street waiting for the procession to move off.  It was a wonderful sight seeing all the service men and women who came to remember their fallen comrades from WWI, WWII right up to the present day. It was very moving.  The 6th Armoured Support Battalion REME (who have the Freedom of the Town), led by WO1 (RSM) James Cooper, were magnificent.  The Hungerford Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Brownies and Girl Guides were very smart and confident as they lined up with their flags leading the way.  The band played as they marched through the High Street to the War Memorial for the Service of Remembrance.  As the Town Hall clock struck 11.00, the town fell silent for two minutes to remember all the fallen.
