Lest We Forget
Specially arranged and rung during Remembrance-tide with the bells half muffled to mark the Centenary of the Armistice. Rung remembering all those who were killed during the Great War 1914-1918, especially the 12 men, boys & lady from this village who did not return.
We especially remember Private KENNETH DYKES who was killed in action on 31st July 1917 aged 19. Kenneth was a ringer at this Church and a ringing member of this Guild.
We Will Remember Them!
Their Name Liveth For Evermore
When You Go Home, Tell Them Of Us And Say, For Your Tomorrow, We Gave Our Today.
St Martin’s Doubles was specially chosen as the Armistice fell on St Martin’s Day and All Saints Doubles because Kenneth Dykes learnt to ring here at All Saints.
The ringers of 1, 3, 5 & 6 are all members of the local band.
Also 98th birthday compliment today to Ronald J. Hook, father of the second. He was a Merchant Seaman in WW2.

This performance is linked to the events Saint Andrew's and All Saints Society — Nocton Remembers (WW1 commemorations), Saint Andrew's and All Saints Society — Remembering our fallen local Ringers (WW1) and Ringing for the Centenary of the WWI Armistice.
