Ilkeston - Lest We Forget
w/e 10 November 2019
All of this week's pictures were taken with a Kodak DX6490


As Remembrance Sunday neared Cadets like these seen on Bath Street on Saturday were out in force collecting for the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.

Legs Wine Bar

Many premises in the town centre had been displaying commemorative images all week like this one at Legs Wine Bar on South Street.
Lighthouse Shop

Also on South Street a number of shops had window displays - this one was in the Lighthouse Charity shop.
Church Service

The Sunday Service of Remembrance and Commemoration led by Revd. Andrew Baguley began in St Mary's Church and was attended by the Mayor of Erewash and other civic dignitaries together with members of the Royal British Legion and other organisations as well as the general public.
Leaving Church

The congregation then left the church to continue the service in the Market Place around the Cenotaph.
Market Place

The official party gathered with the public on the Market Place to await the arrival of the parade of uniformed groups.
Ilkeston Brass

The parade was led by Ilkeston Brass.
Act of Homage

The service continued at the Cenotaph, now led by Revd. Cliff Winfield (left above) Chaplain to the Ilkeston Branch of the Royal British Legion and included an Act of Homage and the two minute silence at 11 o'clock. Prayers were said by Revd. Baguley (right above).

The two minute silence was impeccably observed by all present.
Wreath Laying.

Wreaths and Poppy Crosses were then laid around the Cenotaph by the civic party and representatives of all the groups present before the parade continued out of the Market Place to bring this year's commemoration to a conclusion..

Wreaths & Crosses

The wreaths and crosses though will remain as a permanent reminder of the sacrifice made by so many in the two World Wars and other conflicts since for our freedom today.
