October Last Post

Today, over 100 people attended with a significant contingent from Woking District Scouts, and a guest from Canada.

We remembered Lance Corporal V Prowse, Service number 189641 of the 1st Battalion, Canadian Infantry.  He was killed 100 years ago today and is buried in Brookwood Military Cemetery, III.B.12.

Paul McCue read out In Flanders Fields by Canadian Physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. Our guest from Canada and McCrae share the same hometown, Guelph, Ontario.

A relatively short ceremony; our Standard Bearer was Mrs Sue Stallard, and the ceremony was officiated by the Rev. Rob Bennett. We had ten Standards on parade.

Afterwards, we retired to The Trench Experience for a short social in the period café.
