National Service of Remembrance

Wednesday 7th March 2018

75 young people from across the Brigade took part in the National Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London on Sunday 12th November.  BB members from England, Northern Ireland and Scotland took part in the parade and laid a wreath at the Cenotaph.

The young people represented the 5th Scarborough, 1st Yeovil, 31st Northampton, 1st Kilbride, 1st Cookstown, 1st Glastry,
7th Newtownabbey, 1st Greenisland, 1st Banagher, 1st Fintona and 1st Stevenston Companies.

John Wilson (17), member of 1st Stevenston, said “It was an honour to get the invitation to go down and take part in this national event and to meet others parading. It is important, because so many have given their life for their country, so we must remember. For many of the young people, this was their first time involved at the commemoration.”

In addition to the events in Whitehall, BB members took part in civic events and Church services across the country.
