Burghfield Remembrance

I attended the 10.20 am march to the Church, laid a wreath at the War Memorial outside, joined the service and observed the 11 am silence.

I would like to thank the organisers, the representatives of the uniformed organisations and all the others who attended to remember. An especially moving part of the service was the reading of the names of all who died in the 1914-18 war from the village.

We were also reminded of modern dangers facing our service personnel by the Chinook helicopter which came over from RAF Odiham.
