March Last Post

Today saw a good turn out of Standards for the ceremony.

We remembered Gunner Edward Kenneth Balm, service number B/38297 of the Royal Canadian Artillery. He was aged 20 years old when he died.

We also remembered Gunner Robert Alexander Dixon, service number D/118141 also of the Royal Canadian Artillery.

Both were killed exactly 80 years ago today on 5th March 1943 and are buried in Brookwood Military Cemetery.

Paul McCue delivered the Individual Remembrance with Peter Hills offering prayers and blessings. Ruth Moore sounded the Last Post.

We had standards from the Woking Royal Naval Association, the Artists Rifles, the Royal British Legion (Surrey), the Royal British Legion (Knaphill, Bisley and West End Branch) and our Senior Standard Bearer paraded the Royal Engineers Standard. Alan Lopez carried the Brookwood Last Post Standard.

Afterwards we retired to the Trench Experience for refreshments.

Thank you to Alan Meeks for the photographs.
