RAF Brize Norton Remembers
A Remembrance Ceremony was held at RAF Brize Norton this morning to remember those from across the world who died or were injured in the service of their country.
Hundreds of people from across the station attended the Remembrance Service, including Service personnel, MOD Civil Servants and Contractors. Those gathered, took part in a ceremony of remembrance conducted by the RAF Brize Norton Chaplains, then stood to attention during the playing of the Last Post, followed by two minutes silence at 11.00am.
Reverend Stewart said “It is important for us in uniform, and the wider defence community, to participate in an act of remembrance, to think on the sacrifice of those not just from distant wars but recent conflicts as well. To share it within the Parachute Training School hanger, on the edge of the airfield, surrounded by some of the tools, sights and sounds of our trade, frames our reflections on the continuing work and sacrifice of our Service personnel.’
A Remembrance Service will take place at St John's Church, Burford Road, Carterton, on Sunday 13 November 2016 at 9.45am, followed by a Parade to the War Memorial in Alvescot Road for the laying of wreaths.
