On Remembrance Sunday people across the country will fall silent to think about the brave men and women who lost their lives fighting in the war.

A number of services will take place across Hounslow where families and friends of fallen soldiers will join veterans, dignitaries, cubs, scouts and guides to pay their respects to those who died fighting for their country, in a peaceful parade followed by laying of wreaths, on Sunday November 8.

On the eve of Remembrance Sunday, Saturday October 7, a commemorative concert with international soprano Sarah Gabriel will join Hounslow Youth Orchestra, Hounslow Youth Brass and Hounslow Youth Choir at Holy Trinity Church in High Street, Hounslow, from 7.30pm.

On Armistice Day, Wednesday November 11, a special event will take place at the Civic Centre in Lampton Road for everyone to attend.

Councillor Steve Curran, leader of Hounslow council, said: “Remembrance Sunday is a chance for Hounslow’s Second World War veterans to remember friends who lost their lives in the conflict but it’s also a chance for all of us to think about the sacrifices made by so many people and focus on the horror of war so that it’s never forgotten and never repeated.

“I hope as many people as possible will join us for the borough’s remembrance services and proudly wear the British Legion’s poppy.”
