A look back to Carey’s Remembrance Sunday 9/11/14

 

To commemorate 100 years since the start of WW1, this year the Junior Church researched the men of Carey who died during the First World War.

Every name on the war memorial in the church was read out with a brief resume of their life including when and where they were killed. They started with Alfred Ashley and finished with the Wallis family, Percy, Ernest, Fred and Sydney, the latter showing a whole generation was killed. This culminated with the 2 minutes silence to remember all those killed in this conflict and conflicts since then.

The Boys’ Brigade again supplied the centre piece for the service with the words “Boys’ Brigade” and “100” made from poppies. The display included artefacts from a church member’s grandfather to remind us again that we are all affected by war. This gentleman fought in the war and was invalided out in 1917, therefore surviving.

“THEY WILL NOT GROW OLD AS WE THAT ARE LEFT GROW OLD, WE WILL REMEMBER THEM”
