Local Assembly Member for Monmouth, Nick Ramsay, attended the Remembrance Parade held in Monmouth yesterday morning, joining large crowds who turned out to show their respect to all those service personnel who have sacrificed their lives for us all.
The annual parade set off from the Shire Hall in Monmouth and was followed by a moving church service at St Mary’s Church.
Speaking today Nick said: “I was pleased to be able to join the crowds in Monmouth on Sunday morning and to join members of our armed forces in the parade. This year marked 100 years since the first two minute silence ordered by George V to remember the fallen of the First World War, but this symbolic gesture remains as poignant and moving now as it must have done all those years ago. It is important that we never forget to honour all those men and women over the years who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may live in freedom.”
