Thanks to the generosity of those good folks at the Facebook page of St. James Church in Brownhills I can feature these galleries of images from their 2016 Remembrance events held in Brownhills.

Once again the town turned out in force and paid tribute to the fallen and serving in this most solemn of events.

I don’t know who was the photographer, but they’re both splendid galleries; if anyone else has images they’d like to share of the occasion I’d be happy to post them here too.

St. James Church said: ‘A big ‘Thank you’ to the staff and Cadets of 1444 (Brownhills) Sqn ATC for all of their help tidying the graveyards this afternoon in preparation for tomorrow. They did a great job!’ – indeed, a fine collection of young people. Thank you all.

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.

You are a credit to the community.

While I’m about it, I hear next year the parade could be under threat once more; if anyone from the Royal British Legion would like to get in touch with specifics, details of fundraisers or whatever, they will receive my wholehearted support. Please do drop me a line, folks.
