Service of Remembrance

Service of Remembrance

The Service of Remembrance on Sunday 13th November was led by the Assistant Chaplain, the Reverend TJE Fernyhough, along with the Chaplain, the Reverend D. Wilson. Parents, guests and pupils attended. 

Afterwards, there was a Laying of Wreaths at Memorial Arch by the Warden: with the CCF Contingent, the Piper and Guard in attendance.

This was followed by a fly-past by a Tiger Moth, the main RAF training aeroplane in the Second World War, in World War II colours. The Tiger Moth released Poppies over Memorial Arch at the close of the Ceremony.

Alfie Cameron, Remove, G Social wrote:
The day started with a solemn remembrance day service and two minute silence to remember those who had died in the two great wars and especially those from the college. The service then continued outside at memorial arch where two wreaths were placed to commemorate those who fell from the college. There was then a short CCF demonstration of the Guard of Honour and also a parade. It felt important to be part of such a great occasion and to represent both Radley and the college CCF. I think the highlight was observing the flypast and seeing the plane drop poppies over where we were stood. It was generally a wonderful occasion and it was nice to be part of it.
