IN PICTURES: Pershore falls silent in remembrance

Evesham Editorial 18th Nov, 2022   0

MEMBERS of Pershore Royal British Legion led the Remembrance Sunday parade through the heart of the town as residents stopped to remember all those who gave their lives.

The parade of veterans and cadets marched through the town to Pershore Abbey to attend the annual Remembrance Service led by Canon Claire Lording.

Following the parade, a short service of Remembrance organised by creator Sue Cosnett was held at Pershore Warhorse Memorial and was attended by a great many people, horses and dogs ending with the national silence being observed at 11am.

A special act of remembrance on Armistice Day (November 11) saw its ancient Abbey floodlit in poppy red light.

The Lantern tower, which can be seen for miles across the district, was most striking and served as a poignant reminder of the human cost of war which saw the town lose 101 young men during the First World War and a further 24 during the Second World War.
