Over 800 people attended the Burghfield & District Royal British Legion Parade on a sunny but chilly Remembrance Sunday this year at Burghfield St Mary’s Church.

The Royal British Legion, regular Army and Royal Air Force were represented, along with the Army and RAF Cadets, Explorers, Scouts, Guides, Brownies, Cubs and Beavers and a Chinook helicopter from RAF Odiham flew low over the churchyard as the wreaths were laid.
Lt. Col. Bruce Neeves, the Parade Commander, reflected “This year we remember the many who gave their lives so we could live our lives in peace and safety. It is 80 years since the outbreak of the Second World War. In Burghfield we remembered those brave young men who were killed in action during that war, some are buried in the Church of St Mary Virgin, including the son of the then Rector of the church: Flt Sgt Harry Nicholson RAFVR. Burghfield showed its loyalty and remembrance with a turnout of over 800 residents and 20 flag bearers. Definitely not forgotten.”
During the Commemoration Service those members of the parish who gaves their lives in WW2, were specially remembered and their names read out by members of the Air Cadet Force, the Air Training Corp and the Girl Guides.
The service was taken by the Reverend Glynn Lautenbach, Priest-in-Charge of St Mary’s and Dr Anthony Peabody, who is the Chaplain to the Burghfield and District Branch of the Royal British Legion, who commented “How heartening it is to see so many children from our local organisations joining with the older generation to remember the people who fought for them to be able to live in peace.

The parade was organised by Lt. Col. Bruce Neeves, Parade Commander, of the Burghfield & District Branch of the Royal British Legion.
