A Day to RememberNovember 16, 2018
The RAF roundel was just one of the many wreaths and poppies placed at the War Memorial in the grounds of Brick Lane Music Hall in loving memory of former servicemen, in a moving Remembrance Sunday Service attended this year by over 400 people, including local schoolchildren, members of the Silvertown and Woolwich British Legion, Music Hall staff, local residents and members of Newham Council, including the deputy Mayor.
The service included songs and poems by local children as well as artists from Brick Lane Music Hall and the Caledonia Pipe Band. Afterwards, tea, coffee and cakes were served inside the theatre before the official parade back to the British Legion.
Photographs by Robert Rogers. Many thanks to Robert who laid the RAF roundel in memory of his uncle Jack and his crew, killed in action 70 years ago this year, plus other members of his family who died in service of the country, mostly in the local area.
