poppy.jpg Remembrance Sunday in Gainsborough

Remembrance Day and the Two Minute Silence have been observed since the end of the First World War but their relevance remains undiminished. When we bow our heads in reflection, we remember those who fought for our freedom during the two world wars. We also mourn and honour those who have lost their lives in more recent conflicts. Today, with troops ready for duty in trouble spots around the world, Remembrance Sunday and the Two Minute Silence are as important as ever.

Remembrance transcends all boundaries and The Royal British Legion seeks a small yet important individual and collective act, a rare moment when the nation can stand together and reflect on the price of freedom. The price is still being paid and more than 12,000 British servicemen and women have been killed on duty since 1945.

Small troughs are placed at Gainsborough's War Memorial to act as a Garden of Remembrance and everyone is invited to lay their own symbol of remembrance in them any time before Monday 11th November.

Gainsborough's main tribute to those who have died or suffered for their country in war will take place on Remembrance Sunday 10th November. The church service will commence at 10.00am at All Saints Parish Church, followed by a procession led by The Royal British Legion and the Clergy, followed by civic dignitaries and the congregation to the nearby war memorial. Here, there will be a short act of remembrance. The Two Minute Silence will commence at 11.00am, the Last Post and the Reveille will be played and wreaths will be laid. Any organisation or individual will be given the opportunity to lay a wreath or other symbol of remembrance.

Each year, the date of 11th November is Armistice Day, the day that marks the end of the First World War. At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month The Two Minute Silence is observed. Everyone is asked to stop what they are doing at 11.00am and stand for two minutes.
