February Last Post

A chilly February day saw around 40 members of the public join us for our monthly ceremony today.

The subject of our Individual Remembrance was Pilot Officer Peter Harry Moller of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve who died on 22 January 1941, aged 24 and is buried yards from the RAF Memorial Shelter in Brookwood Cemetery. He was killed when the Blenheim he was in crashed shortly after take-off from Bodney.

Tom Milne paraded the Union Flag and Alan Lopez paraded the BLP Standard. Rob Bennett performed chaplain duties and Mrs Ruth Moore sounded the Last Post.

The Exhortation and Kohima Epitaph were read by two young people, a brother and sister who happened to be in the cemetery. The BLP’s goal is for young people to be involved in the ceremony as much as possible.

After the ceremony, we retreated to the Trench Experience to warm up.
