Cadets support Mayor of London’s Rememberance Service

Young people from the Sea Cadets, Army Cadets and Air Cadets in London were on hand to ensure the Mayor of London’s Remembrance Service at City Hall went smoothly on Friday 8th November.  They welcomed guests, handed out orders of service, assisted with the seating and chatted to guests over tea and cake afterwards.

This inter-faith annual Service of Remembrance has grown substantially year on year.  Eighteen wreaths were laid on behalf of organisations including The Royal British Legion, London Fire Brigade, Metropolitan Police Service, London Ambulance Service, Transport for London, The Environment Agency, St John Ambulance and British Red Cross.

This year’s Remembrance Service marked the 75th anniversaries of the Normandy landings in June 1944 and the Battles of Imphal and Kohima in north-east India in March and July 1944.

Len Duvall OBE, London Assembly Member and Chair of the City Hall branch of The Royal British Legion thanked all members of the Armed Forces for the vital work they do to support and protect the country, and thanked the cadets present for supporting the event.
