Service of Remembrance at Richmond War Memorial

Nov 08, 2015, 11:16 AM, Richmond, Greater London, England

The 2015 remembrance day service at Richmonds War Memorial.

As is the way in Richmond the crowds gathered quite late for today's remembrance day service. By the time the Last Post was played on a slightly squeaky trumpet however the terrace overlooking the wall memorial and the river Thames beyond was packed several deep. This recording includes the hymns "O God, our help in ages past" and "I vow to thee my country", the traditional two-minute silence (extended slightly and held before 11 AM - presumably as a modern twist), the laying of wreaths and the National Anthem.
