75th Anniversary of VE Day

This weekend we were supposed to be joining with St. Andrew’s Church for a service to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe Day. The whole Group would have attended the service and our Drum Corps would have played. Obviously, due the current restrictions, this is not possible.

Instead, the Church have created a virtual service, for which we have made an Act of Remembrance for the  men of the Parish who died while serving in the armed forces during the Second World War. These include the 5 Scouts who died.

You can watch the service below.

You can read all about the men of the Parish commemorated from the First World War and the Second Word War here – https://remember.porthillscouts.org.uk

Many thanks to Natasha for playing the Last Post and Reveille.

The Act of Remembrance by itself is available below.
