Community groups are set to join veterans and local Hounslow dignitaries on Armistice Day on Friday 11th November and on Remembrance Sunday , to remember those who lost their lives in the two world wars and more recent conflicts.

Services are taking place across the borough and serving military personnel, cubs, scouts and guides will parade their colours alongside veterans, who will lay wreaths in memory of fallen friends. 

On Friday, the council’s Service of Remembrance will take place in Hounslow High Street, outside Holy Trinity Church.

The event will include a military parade from 10.30am which will include The Irish Guards, Ghurkha Veterans, local cadet forces, Royal British Legion and the Asian Elders.

The parade will finish up outside the church where the service will take place, incorporating a two minute silence at 11am.

On Remembrance Sunday, the following events will be taking place:

• Brentford:  A service at 10.30am at Brentford Memorial outside Brentford Library, attended by Councillor Melvin Collins.

• Chiswick: There will be a wreath-laying service at Chiswick War Memorial at 10.30am, followed by a remembrance service at Christ Church, in Turnham Green. Councillor Paul Lynch is attending.

• Isleworth: Councillor Sue Sampson will join veterans at a remembrance service at the monument outside St Mary's RC Church, Isleworth, at 10.30am.

Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council, said:

“Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday give Hounslow’s war veterans a chance to honour and remember all who lost their lives in the conflicts and  provide an opportunity for all of us to think about the sacrifices made by so many people, including our brave servicemen and women.

“I hope as many people as possible will join us for the borough’s remembrance service on Friday and again at services across the borough on Sunday. Please wear the Royal British Legion’s poppy with pride.”
