Rung with the bells half muffled by the local band on Remembrance Sunday in memory of all those who have lost their lives fighting for our Country in conflicts past and present, especially during the two World Wars. We will remember them.
Rung remembering the 13 men of this parish who lost their lives in the Great War, especially:
Private KENNETH DYKES (31st July, aged 19)
Private WALTER HEBBLEWHITE (11th Aug, aged 23)
Lance Corporal ARCHER ALFRED STIFF (12th Oct, aged 21)
Gunner LESLIE HALKES WRAY (20th Nov, aged 19)
Private GEORGE LEARY (15th Dec, aged 41)
all of whom were killed during 1917 in the Great War.
We especially remember Private KENNETH DYKES, who died on 31st July 1917 aged 19. Kenneth was a ringer at this Church.
Today’s quarter is dedicated to the memory of Gunner Leslie Halkes Wray, of the Tank Corps who was killed in action on 20th November 1917 at Cambrai aged 19. He is commemorated in a stained glass window in the nave of All Saints, and we were pleased to welcome his family to the joint Remembrance Sunday Service this morning at Potterhanworth where Leslie’s Great Great Nephew worn Leslie’s WW1 medals with pride.
When You Go Home, Tell Them Of Us And Say, For Your Tomorrow, We Gave Our Today.
This was followed by whole pull and stand being rung.
