Brownhills Remembrance Sunday pictures


Sarah Moore sent the above wonderful picture, ‘Here are Head Girl and Head Boy Erin and Owen representing St James School during the Remembrance Parade on Sunday.’ Image posted with permission of parents.

After posting the photos of the Walsall Wood Remembrance event on Sunday supplied by David Evans, I received a bit of an indignant enquiry as to where the photos of the Brownhills Remembrance Parade were.

As I pointed out at the time, no readers had sent any in – and as I was elsewhere I couldn’t take any myself. Please folks, if you ever have photos of events in the area you’d like to share, I’m happy to post them up. There’s only one of me and I can’t be everywhere, so all help gratefully received!

I pointed out in the comments that I’d never actually considered running photos of the Remembrance before, but I’ll endeavour to cover it better next year.

All was not lost though, as reader Den pointed out some pictures had been posted on the Facebook page of St. James Church, so I asked if I could post them here – and generously, the Church agreed.

I don’t know who took them exactly, but they’re a lovely set; there are the Air Training Corps, Army Cadet Force, TS Vigo, Royal British Legion, Scouts, Guides, Brownies and others. Brownhills turned out well, despite they too having a curtailed parade route.

Thanks to St. James for letting me share these images, and my gratitude to all those who took part in, or went to observe Remembrance in whatever community you live. You did us all proud.

If you have anything you’d like to share, comment here or mail me – BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Thanks!
