The sun shone on our remembrance day services

Yesterday I attended two remembrance services. In the morning at All Saints’ Church in Lightwater, and in the afternoon at St Michael’s Church in Camberley.

Following the short service at All Saints Church, when the procession, including cadets, cubs, scouts, guides, and St John Ambulance arrived at the Lightwater war memorial, it became the largest gathering I’ve seen for the act of remembrance.

That the outdoor service was bathed in sunlight was a pleasant surprise, although I think we’ve been lucky in the recent past by having dry weather. I took a few photo’s during the outdoor service.

The service in Camberley was a much bigger event than Lightwater. I know comparisons are said to be odious, but of all the remembrance services I’ve been too locally, Lightwater is my favourite. It’s church service is short, as is the procession to the war memorial. The number of young children involved is amazing,  but most pleasing of all is that the service by the war memorial is a 11.0am – the appointed time for paying homage to those who’ve lost their lives in wars.
