Stow Maries Remembrance Sunday 2017

Today was, as we all know remembrance Sunday, a time when the whole company takes the time to remember all those who gave everything in the name of their country. 2017 marks 99 years since the end of WW1 and the start of this tradition.

It was fitting then to attend an original, largely untouched First World War airfield for the service. Stow Maries is one of my favourite venues in the country so it was a pleasure to return again for this occasion. The team there put on a fantastic day with free entry to the immaculately finished museum alongside food and drink available on site.

The service, complete with marching band and parade was a wonderful way to pay our respects to those brave men and women who gave up their lives. The service was closed with an impressive poppy drop by two of the Stampe Team, an impressive effort giving the gusty conditions this afternoon. A fitting reminder that we will, always, remember them.

Stow Maries is a remarkable site and seems to be further restored and developed on each visit. I look forward to seeing further developments next season.
