Remembrance Day Service 2019

Remembrance Day Service 2019

Our Annual Service of Remembrance was held on Sunday 10th November 2019 at the War Memorial at St. Helens House.
There was a healthy turn out of ODs and guests including representatives from Derby Grammar School and some parents, which helped to make the service inclusive, reflective and poignant for all who attended. We were also very pleased to welcome members of the local Army Cadet Force who laid memorial crosses for the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force at the memorial.

Thanks to our President Ralph Holden and archivist Barrie Sheard for organising and making the preparations for the event.
