Arundel’s Act of Remembrance procession was led by troops of the 137 (Java) Battery 12th Regiment Royal Artillery who marched down the High Street, followed by the Mayor and Town Council civic procession, clergy and choirs .
The Standard bearers from Arundel’s Guiding and Scouting groups were in attendance with the wreath layers who lined up at the War Memorial in the Town Square. Pupils from Arundel CE Primary and St Philips Primary Schools read their own reflections on the commemorations.
Wreaths were laid, including by the Duke and Duchess of Norfolk and Andrew Griffiths MP. The service was led by Canon David Twinley of St Nicholas and Canon David Parmiter of Arundel Cathedral.
‘The Last Post’ and ‘Reveille’ was played by bugler Ian Kingshot with additional musical accompaniment, including ‘Sussex by the Sea’ as the troops marched, from the band led by Nigel Searle.
Thank you to our hard-working community volunteers who gave up their time to marshal at the service, Tony Stoves for providing the PA system and photographer Nigel Cull for capturing the essence of this annual service.
