YOU London pays respect

The young people now standing at Platform 8 …are from one of the ten YOU London organisations – (Youth Organisations in Uniform). Representatives of five of the ten YOU London groups attended a special commemoration at Platform 8 Victoria Station London on 10th November. St John Ambulance, Volunteer Police Cadets, Scouts, Army Cadets and Sea Cadets all laid wreaths commemorating the return of the unknown warrior to that spot at 8.32 pm on 10th November 1920. Smartness, respect, pride and dignity were evident as the uniformed young people stepped forward to lay their wreaths and stood silently as the last post was played.
