Remembrance Events

Mike and Hannah did two remembrance events last week. The first was to honour the memory of the local Home Guard members who were killed/ injured at Corbyn Head whilst on duty. This year the event also marked the 100th anniversary of the Royal British Legion. Torquay was one of the founding groups and has raised a great deal of money over the years for veterans and their families.

The second was at the Cenotaph in Torquay and was for the HMS Repulse and HMS Prince of Wales Association. It was very touching to see a 101 year old veteran stand and salute his fallen comrades and great to see children, grandchildren and great grandchildren still remembering the sacrifice of crew members of these vessels.,worthwhile%20defensive%20support.%20About%201200%20men%20were%20lost.
