Service of Remembrance

The CCF contingent of over 280 cadets paraded alongside the rest of the Senior School in beautiful sunshine on Saturday 7th November for a well-observed and fitting Service of Remembrance with some newly learned drill manoeuvres, to enable social distancing to be observed.

Cdt CPO Alex T of the Royal Navy Section carried the CCF Banner, flanked by the senior cadets of the Army & Royal Air Force Sections, Cdt CSM Jack G and Cdt WO Charlie C, who also collected the wreaths. These were laid in the School Chapel at 11am on the 11th November.

The CCF SSI & Contingent Commander read out The Roll of Honour of over 220 OGs killed in the World Wars. Schola sang the introit, the Chaplain then led a full Act of Remembrance and preached on the symbolism of the poppy, and the School Captains delivered the reading and the prayers. School brass instrumentalists sounded The Last Post with clarity and precision and the School observed the two minute silence impeccably before being led in an act of dedication by the Headmaster.
