Armistice Day


And in the morning, we will remember them…

Cadet Flight Sergeant Molly Brown of Devon & Somerset Wing’s 2282 (Somer) Squadron, is seen here dressing a Commonwealth war grave in Midsomer Norton, near Bath, with a spray of poppies.

The ceremony was instigated by the Midsomer Norton & Radstock Branch of the Royal British Legion.

It had been planned since the beginning of this year and was designed to cover 40 graves in nine cemeteries in the local area.

Wing Commander Geoff Wilson. Midsomer Norton & Radstock Royal British Legion President said: “The original idea was to ask young people from the RAF Air Cadets, Army Cadets, Scouts and Guides to lay a poppy spray on each grave but the pandemic meant we had to change our plans but Molly did one and this was the poignant image captured by former cadet Will Nicol.”

Molly said: “It was an honour to be asked to dress the grave on behalf of the RAF Air Cadets during this difficult time. We will be forever grateful to those who so bravely put their lives on the line for us and we will remember them.”

Today all members of the RAF Air Cadets remember those who served, fought and lost their lives defending our nation.
