Towns ready to remember the fallen

SALISBURY and surrounds are gearing to pay tribute to those who have given their lives in service of their country.
Remembrance Day is on November 11 – the eleventh day of the eleventh month – when two minutes’ silence is held across the country to remember those who gave their lives
in service.
Below are two of the main events happening in our area:
The city of Salisbury is set to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country at its Annual Remembrance Sunday Service at the War Memorial in Salisbury Market Place on Sunday, 13th November, from just before 11am.
The ceremony will be led by the Salisbury Branch of the Royal British Legion and supported by Salisbury City Council. Everyone will gather at the War Memorial for a two-minute silence at 11am followed by prayers.

Armistice Day
On Friday, 11th November, there will be a small ceremony in the Guildhall Square at 11am to mark Armistice Day, which all are also welcome to attend.
In Amesbury, at 10.30am,
the Remembrance Parade will march along the High Street, to St Mary and St Melor Abbey Church.
The Mayor of Amesbury and a senior officer will take the salute as the parade marches to the churchyard where the Remembrance Service will be held at the War Memorial.
Prayers will be offered and the names of the fallen in both World Wars will be read before the silence and wreath laying.
