Remembering the fallen

The annual Ipswich Remembrance Sunday service will take place on 12th November at the War Memorial in Christchurch Park at 10.50am.

The service, which is being organised by the Royal British Legion, will be attended by the Mayor of Ipswich, Councillor Sarah Barber, local veterans, cadets, civic leaders and the public.

After the service, the Lord Lieutenant, Clare, Countess of Euston, will take the salute at the March Past near Christchurch Mansion.

On Sunday afternoon, the Ipswich branch of the British Korean Veterans Association is dedicating its renovated memorial at around 1.30pm. The Deputy Mayor, Councillor Roger Fern, will attend a short service at the memorial in the Millennium Cemetery with veterans and family members.

On Friday 10th November at 11am, almost 99 years after the guns fell silent on the Western Front in the First World War, local schoolchildren will join veterans, the Mayor and the Deputy Mayor, Councillor Roger Fern, at the Fields of Honour in the Old Cemetery for a service of remembrance.

Each child will lay a poppy at the grave of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
