Remembrance Ceremonies

Remembrance Parade, HMS Collingwood

Friday 10th November was again a bright sunny morning at HMS COLLINGWOOD and over two hundred Officers, Staff, Trainees and Civilians mustered at 1030 at the Falklands Memorial for the Remembrance Day Parade.

Also present were some of the wives widowed during the previous year. An ecumenical service led by the Establishment Chaplain included hymns, prayers and a reflection, culminating in the last post and the two minutes silence.

A roll call of those in Naval Service who had died during the previous twelve months was read out and wreaths were laid by Captain Tim Davey on behalf of the Establishment and by Captain Jim Palmer on behalf of the Officers’ Association.
