As dusk approaches on Remembrance Sunday this year, there is to be a special remembrance ceremony to remember those Lewesians that lost their lives in the Great War. The ceremony is being organised by Tom Reeves and the University of the Arts, with the cooperation of the Royal British Legion and the Town Council.

The Bonfire Societies of Lewes have been asked to play a very important role in this ceremony by coming up with volunteers (members) to represent each soldier from Lewes who sacrificed their lives and whose name appears on the Lewes War Memorial. Each member (in civvies) will leave the house where each soldier lived with a flaming torch to arrive at the War Memorial at 5:00pm. Each of these members will wear a badge and carry a card displaying the name of the soldier they are representing.

As each member arrives at the War Memorial they hand in their card and when that soldier?s name is read out, they will move forward, douse their torch and walk off down Market Street to a dump for the spent torches.

How can Smiler's post get two dislikes? This is a wonderful tribute and I'll be there to offer my full support.
Two dislikes? Maybe those two horrible greenie women that lay white poppies.

Well done to whoever came up with that idea.
