Over 300 people take part in Remembrance Day parade

Banbury pay tribute with Remembrance Day parade.

Crowds lined Banbury’s streets on Sunday as more than 300 people took part in the town’s Remembrance Day parade to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in two world wars and other conflicts.

The military and civic procession, led by the Air Cadets Band, moved from Broad Street to St Mary’s Church for a remembrance service before going into People’s Park where more than 40 poppy wreaths were laid at the war memorial.

Service men and women, veterans and civilians placed wreaths at the Cenotaph before a closing ceremony that included the lowering of flags, a moving rendition of The Last Post and the verse of the Robert Laurence Binyon poem ‘For the Fallen’ that contains the immortal Remembrance Day words ‘at the going down of the sun………’

This year’s tribute was the first since the town’s war memorial was updated to include those who died serving their country in all wars and conflicts at home and abroad as well as the fallen in World War 1 and World War 2.

The wreath-laying is an emotional part of the day

Royal British Legion (Banbury branch) president and leader of Banbury Town Council Kieron Mallon said:

“Remembrance Day honours those who made the ultimate sacrifice and it is a tribute to them that so many people turned out to stand in silence as the parade marched through town.

“The wreath-laying is an emotional part of the day and hundreds of people gathered at the war memorial to pay their respects – as they do every year.”
