Remembrance services as South Cumbria honours heroes
Last updated at 16:48, Friday, 09 November 2012
THE sacrifices of servicemen and women past and present will be remembered at a number of ceremonies across South Cumbria on Sunday.
The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month marks the anniversary of the armistice signed between Germany and the Allies in 1918 to signal the beginning of the end of World War I.
On Sunday in Barrow, people are encouraged to assemble outside the town hall at 10.15am, before a march to the Cenotaph at 10.35am for the service.
Similar events will be held at Dalton, Ulverston, Millom and Grange.
David Bridge, who will experience his first Remembrance Day as secretary of Barrow’s British Legion Club, said after the services many veterans would gather there to catch up.
“People will came back after the services and have a good chin-wag because for some of the veterans it’s the only time in the year when they see each other,” he said.
“I’d say it’s more of a happy occasion. They do some reminiscing obviously and that sort of thing, but they talk about their service and swap stories.”
“The Army Cadets and the Air Training Corps also come along and we’re always trying to attract younger members along because a lot of the older members have gone, sadly.”
