Coming Together in Remembrance

Monday 11th November 2019

As we pass the centenary of the first official Armistice Day commemorations that took place in 1919, thousands of members of The Boys’ Brigade joined with the nation in remembrance of the sacrifices made by countless numbers of people in conflict, including many former Brigade members.

Young people and leaders across the country took part in acts of remembrance in local churches as well as parades with other organisations, politicians and members of the public in their local communities.

Many of the commemorations saw Brigade members lay wreaths on behalf of the organisation, bands performing in parades as well as buglers sounding the Last Post.

14-year-old Frankie, a member of 3rd Enfield who took part in a local Remembrance Sunday parade with hundreds of others from the community, said:

I think it is important to take part in events like this to remember the sacrifices that other people have made for us. If it wasn’t for them things would be very different and we might not even be here.
