Remembrance Sunday 2022
Published: 14 November 2022
On Sunday 13th November 2022, Bognor Regis Town Council, Ex-Service Associations and The Salvation Army held the annual Remembrance Sunday Service at the War Memorial on Clarence Road, Bognor Regis.
Crowds in their hundreds gathered to pay their respects to those who had made the ultimate sacrifice, fighting for our freedom.
The Parade, organised by Mike Monk from the Royal Air Force Association Bognor Regis branch, featured Veterans as well as representatives from local Scout and Cadet forces, and was led by Parade Marshall, Staff Sergeant Aden Huff of the Army Cadets.
A Cadet Marching band accompanied the Parade this year, which added extra ‘gravitas’ to this important occasion. The poignant Service was taken by the Mayor’s Chaplain, Major Matt Butler of The Salvation Army, and featured The Salvation Army band.
Wreath layers, dignitaries and other participating organisations were invited into the Council Chamber for refreshments following the Service, and were addressed by the Town Mayor, as well as Deputy Lieutenant Rear Admiral John Lippiett and Nick Gibb MP.
We Will Remember Them.
