Armistice Day 2023 – 11 November 2023
LEST WE FORGET
Each year we gather in Worplesdon to remember the dead, the lost, and the
injured from amongst the armed forces and of course those from amongst
the civilian population.
This year we note the hostilities in Israel and Gaza, the ongoing conflict in
Ukraine, the 80th anniversaries of both Stalingrad and the Dambusters Raid,
the 70th anniversary of the armistice ending fighting in the Korean War, as
well as the 60th anniversary of the last National Service serviceman being
In a railway carriage in France, the armistice was enacted on this day 105
years ago, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, with hope in
the hearts of the combatants and their peoples
They shall grow not old
As we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning.
We will remember them.
ALL: We will remember them.
“For the Fallen” Robert Laurence Binyon
We will remember them!
