The Royal British Legion has confirmed details for the arrangements for Remembrance Sunday which this year commemorates the 100th anniversary of the conclusion of the First World War, and also falls on Armistice Day – 11th November.
At 1.30pm, a parade will form Kettering War Memorial for the annual wreath-laying celebration, and then a service will take place at Kettering Parish Church. After the service, refreshments will be available in the Council Chamber for those attending, including members of the public.
There won’t be a formal gathering at the War Memorial at 11am this year as Remembrance Sunday falls on the 11th itself, this happens when the 11th falls on a different day of the week.
Allan Short, of the Royal British Legion, said:
“Remembrance Day is a time for the Kettering community to come together to pay tribute to those who sacrificed their lives for their country. With this year marking the 100th anniversary since the conclusion of the First World War, I hope residents will join us in honouring the brave individuals who are gone, but certainly not forgotten.”
