Thame’s Service of Remembrance 2021

Last Sunday there was a huge turnout for Thame’s annual Service of Remembrance in recognition of those who have given their lives for our country. The event started with a procession from Thame Town Hall, ending at the Memorial Gardens and included members of the Royal British Legion, Town Councillors, service personnel from RAF Halton, representatives from various community groups, members of St John Ambulance, Thame Guiding and Thame Scouts. The repositioning of the large screen this year provided both a clear view of the proceedings for all to see and words to accompany the service. Special thanks go to the owners of the Cottage Bakery who allowed the use of their premises for filming. A spectacular low level fly past by a Chinook and Puma courtesy of RAF Benson wowed the crowd who ended the service with a spontaneous round of applause.
