Hilton Meadows Memorial Dedication

Monday, the 4th of August, was the anniversary of one hundred years to the day that war was declared by Germany on Belgium marking the beginning of World War One.

I was honoured to be a guest at the Service of Remembrance and unveiling of the new memorial, dedicated to those who lost their lives in service of their country from Hilton, Hoon and Marston-on-Dove.

The whole service was excellent, there were serving members of the forces, families and friends of the fallen, a choir singing war time songs as well as lots of local residents joining together to remember the past.
