3 Aug 2014: WWI Commemoration Service and parade - Hopefully I managed to capture most visual aspects of the service from the welcome by Andrew, Jack Williams’ address, the reading the names of the fallen by the young people, the band accompanying the congregation in their hymn singing, the addresses and prayers, the RBL exhortation and the Last Post, and finally the trooping out of the Colours.
