Montgomery Remembrance Day

November 16, 2022

‘Hello Adam’ said one of the teachers as the children arrive at the Garden of Remembrance in Montgomery, ‘has it been a year since I last saw you here’ – goodness me, it had and how quickly those months have flown by.

It is always a lovely sight to see the children take part in the Montgomery Remembrance service, it is obvious how heartfelt they all feel about this particular event where the children come to lay into the ground the remembrance crosses with the names of the men who had fallen in both world wars.

As the children placed their crosses, Captain Paul Hodgson explained who some of the men were, some having lived very close to the spot where the crosses were being laid, some from families still living in Montgomery.

Following this later in the week was the 11th November Armistice service followed by a very large gathering on Sunday starting off with a parade from the Town Hall to St Nicholas Church, then onto the remembrance gardens. Later in the evening another service was held, as has been done every year, at the Town Hill Monument where folk gathered to pay their respects made even more poignant with the setting sun.

Dear Adam,
Once again, very many thanks for turning out as duty photographer for the Montgomery Remembrance events this year, from the school children placing their crosses in the rain and drizzle, to the Armistice and Sunday’s services.

I have now had a chance to look at the photographs and they are excellent, very many thanks to you for showing what Montgomery can do in honouring and remembering the town's Fallen.

I’m very grateful,

With thanks and best wishes

Captain Paul Hodgson
