Chair of BFSA (London) District Paul Basson on 10th September 2017 attended on behalf of the BFSA at the Firefighters Memorial Trust’s, The Firefighters International Service of Remembrance & Wreath Laying Ceremony.
I met up with many members of our Association and we joined the trustees of FFMT, UK Firefighters, Firefighters Family’s, Fire Cadets, Fire organisations and Firefighters from Overseas for a church Service at St Sepulchre – without – Newgate, Holborn Viaduct, London. EC1A 2DQ at 12:30 hrs.
At about 13:50, the bands, standards and attendees paraded to the National Firefighters Memorial in Carter Lane near St Paul’s Cathedral.
A short service of remembrance then took place followed by Wreath laying ceremony where I laid a Wreath on behalf of the National BFSA and London District Members.
As this was my first time for me laying a wreath … “I was deeply moved and overcome by this act of remembrance…. God Bless, Those that have past, those of the present and those to come”
