“They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.”
Those four lines never fail to
send a shiver down my spine…
writes Joe Maggs, of The Kings and
Queens News Team.
On the 11th
of November, every year, since just under
one hundred years ago, this country falls silent for two
minutes to remember those who have made the ultimate
sacrifice. They have done so not for personal gain, not for
money, not for any materialistic goal. They have done so
for our freedom, for our safety, and to serve the country
they love. What these brave men and women do every
single day is one of the most honourable services any hu-
man can carry out.
Week, students of The Kings
of Wessex Academy attended their
local church, St Andrew’s Church
here in Cheddar, to join together
and remember the brave service-
men and servicewomen who have
tragically lost their lives in the line
As always, the services were moving,
respectful and enjoyable and we
thank Mrs Shorrock, Mr Targett and
all the students involved.
“We will remember them.”
