In Memory – Remembrance Day 2016

President John and ex-serviceman Club member Les Bouts joined Honorary Club members the Mayor and Mayoress of Wolverhampton together with representatives of the City’s many service organisations on Sunday to lay wreaths in memory of the fallen at the Wolverhampton Cenotaph as part of the City’s Observance of Remembrance to mark the sacrifice of those who in the words of the Rotary motto truly put ‘Service Above Self’.

There was an excellent turnout for the Observance with the Band of the West Midlands Fire Service leading a 400-strong parade including detachments from ex-Service, Regular, Reserve, Cadet Units and representatives of other local uniformed organisations from Wulfruna Street to St Peter’s Square, where a Drumhead Service – the traditional form for a religious service attended by troops in the field – took place, followed by a second service in St Peter’s Collegiate Church.
