Remembrance Sunday 2021
Despite the on-going COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation the Remembrance Weekend in North Killingholme took place as planned.
A simple ceremony, with 2 mins silence observed, took place at 11am at the Memorial Stone on Lancaster Approach.
The service was taken by Rev. Peter Green and wreaths laid by Honor Redshaw, Jill Stocks and Kevin Surrey (relatives of Sgt R A Drury), Paula and Dan Jeffries (relatives of F/O Donald Rudd) and Kath Robinson.
Wreaths were laid on behalf of the Squadron Association. Numerous wooden poppy crosses were placed in remembrance of 550 crews lost on operations.
There was a good turn out at The Memorial Stone, both 550 association members and local people, and a similiar number attended the Church service.
Fourteen people attended the dinner on Saturday evening dinner and twenty-four for Sunday lunch when we were joined by the East Halton RBL group. It was great to have a proper get-together again.
