#WhatWeDo

 

Remembrance Parades

Remembrance

Remembrance artwork created by Cpl Erin Hoad on behalf of the Sqn to say ‘Thank You‘ to those who fought and died 1914 - 1918 can be seen here. The names on the poppies are servicemen who were chosen by staff, cadets, civilian committee and families from the Royal British Legion Thank You campaign.

We will remember them.

Last year, on the very special centenary Remembrance occasion 1414 Sqn has been out around the town at various parades and church services paying our respects to all those who went before in all conflicts from The Great War to the present day.
