Lest we forget - Remembrance Sunday
This cross stands in remembrance of the fallen from the Great War of 1914 -1918. There are several war graves in this historic little cemetery, over-looking the busy town. On Sunday 11th November at 11.00am there will be 2 minutes silence at the War Memorial in the town centre and across the country. The 18th Div. Boy Scouts had a small ceremony on Saturday 10th November when they laid the poppy wreaths in this photograph.
This post is in remembrance of the much loved
SAMUEL CLIFFORD JACKSON
born 14th September 1918 - died 24th July 2000
He served his country in the Second World War
as a Royal Engineer and Commando
and spent three years as a POW.
