Remembrance Day Parade - 13th November

This year sees the 100th anniversary of the Battles of the Somme which lasted from 1st July to 19th November 1916. On the first day nearly 20,000 British soldiers lost their lives heralding 141 days of horror, during which there were many acts of gallantry and developments of strategy, but no victory and no defeat.

This year our Guilsborough Royal British Legion Remembrance Day Parade and Service, while dedicated to the memory of all service men and women who have given their lives for our Country, will particularly concentrate on those who fell in the First World War.

The Parade will assemble outside The Witch and Sow in Guilsborough at 2.30pm and then, accompanied by the Northamptonshire Army Cadet Force Band, will march to St Etheldreda’s Church for our Remembrance Service. The congregation will then gather round the War Memorial for the laying of wreaths, reading of the names , and exhortation – “ we will remember them”. The Parade will then re-assemble and march back to the public house.

Present or past service men and women (cadet force counts) along with our Firemen and Girl Guides/Brownies, will be welcomed as marchers, and we hope that spectators will turn up to watch this village tradition. We hope that our county’s Lord-Lieutenant, David Laing, will be attending.

This picture is of the first tank attack in the capture of Flers, one of very few positives in all the Somme battles.
