138 Remembers the Fallen

Article posted: Nov 12, 2014 by Sqn Ldr Pass

Sunday 9th November was a stark contrast to the previous day instead of the wet we were greeted at the Victoria Embankment with glorious sunshine, it was as if the weather was aware of what an important day it was. Every year the squadron proudly take part in the remembrance parade however this year due to the 100th year anniversary of World War One the cadets felt even more honoured.

In total we had twenty cadets in attendance all who were immaculately turned out and looked like they had all spent many a hour the previous night on their parade shoes.
The parade consisted serving personnel from the Navy, Marines Army and cadets from Sea, Army and Air, also members from
The British Red Cross.

The crowd was larger this year and fully showed their appreciation for all that attended by clapping and cheering at the end of the parade. The poignant service commemorated all of those that have served and are still serving today in our armed services right across the world.

The laying of the poppy wreaths and the last post were particularly moving this year and marked the occasion appropriately.
