We will remember them

Date published: 05 November 2018


This is a very special week for remembering our armed services and those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Next Sunday it is 100 years since the ending of the First World War, the war that was to end all wars.

Since then we have seen WW2 and many other conflicts.

Far from wars ending, the world is becoming more dangerous by the hour.

And yet, when the country needs a call to arms, our armed services are ready to stand up to protect our freedoms showing immense courage through their contribution.

We will remember them.
