WW1 Centenary Commemmorations

Published: 14 November 2018

The City Council's centenary commemorations took place in and around the Remembrance Gardens  in Bird St.  Following the traditional reading of Binyon's poem by the Mayor of Lichfield, Councillor David Leytham and the laying of the wreaths by the Mayor, the Deputy Lieutenant the Rt Hon The Earl of Shrewsbury and Talbot, representatives of the military and local groups,  the City's Town Crier Ken Knowles read the names of all the Lichfield men who died in World War one and are named on the cenotaph. 

As the names were read, members of 1206 (City of Lichfield) Squadron Air Training Corps spread poppy petals on Minster Pool in memory of the fallen.

Lest we forget.
