Remembrance Parade World War I 100 Years Remembered
On Sunday the 11th November, exactly 100 years since the guns fell silent in 1918, BGS CCF cadets and Officers formed up with the veterans to pay their respects to those who had given so much for us. Over 80 cadets formed up that morning, but looking around at the faces in other youth groups, so many from both schools had joined their friends with the Scouts, St Johns Ambulance, GB and many other youth groups.
This year the focus was on the youth, and representatives from schools and youth organisations were invited to read at the Cenotaph, our RSM Jacq Watton was last to read, then he and Coxian Meharg laid wreaths on behave of the CCF.
Well done to all those who paraded that morning from both schools and to all those from other youth organisations who also stood to show their thanks to young men who gave up their lives our futures.
