Remembrance Sunday service

On Sunday I joined hundreds of residents from Morley and the surrounding villages to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the two world wars and later conflicts – so many people, young and old, turned out to remember those who serve, or have served, in the Armed Forces.

It was a real honour to lay a wreath at the ceremony in the town centre. The whole day was organised by The Royal British Legion who deserve our continued support all year round for the amazing work they do in looking after wounded Armed Forces personnel and their families.

In the afternoon I also attended the Tingley Air Crash memorial service. On 14th November a Halifax Bomber exploded over Tingley and crashed into a row of cottages. Seven airmen died and homes were destroyed. These men died whilst on a training mission, preparing to defend our country and it was right that we paid tribute to their dedication and sacrifice.
