Wisbech will remember the fallen this Sunday at the annual Remembrance Day parade and service.
The parade led by the Combined Cadet Services band will form in the Market Place and march to the War Memorial along High Street at 10.45am.
It will be made up of veterans, serving armed services personnel, standard bearers, sea, air and army cadets, scouts and guides and St John Ambulance members as well as the Mayor and local councillors.
The Salvation Army will be in attendance at the service which will be led by Chaplain Bill Durrant at the war memorial from 10.50am. The service will conclude with the Blessing and then the playing of Last Post and Exhortation by bugler before the two minute’s silence at 11am.
The bugler will then play Reveille before the Kohima Epitaph is read: “When you go home, tell them of us and say, for your tomorrow, we gave our today”.
