Museum to Remember Fallen Comrades
2nd November 2010
The Royal Air Force Museum Cosford will be holding a Remembrance Service paying respect to those Service men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice during their tours of duty. This year’s service commemorates the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain in a tribute to the brave men and women some 70 years after this defining moment in the history of the Royal Air Force.
For those wishing to pay their respects, the Museum will be holding a Service of Remembrance in Hangar 1 on Sunday 14th November. The service will be lead by Rev (Wg Cdr) L E Spicer, C of E Chaplain RAF Cosford, in front of a replica Spitfire, with Air Training Cadets and RAF personnel present.
All visitors to the Museum are welcome to join the service for this Act of Remembrance and are politely requested, if they wish to attend, to assemble in Hangar 1 no later than 10:30am when the Service will commence. A bugle will mark the beginning of 2 minutes silence with the sounding of The Last Post.
Organiser Philip Clayton, says:
“For the young today the poppy is a powerful symbol for them to remember the many RAF personnel that took part in the Battle of Britain seventy years ago and those that are serving today.”
