Dr Matthew Cadwell, Vicar-in-Charge, Old North Church.

Members of the club attended the Remembrance Sunday service at the Old North Church, located in Boston's North End. Revd. Dr Matthew Cadwell conducted a wonderful and moving service, which was followed by a wreath-laying ceremony in Old North's remembrance garden.

Royal British Legion Wreaths were laid by the following individuals:

Consul General Dr Peter Abbott OBE - On behalf of HM Government
Acting Consul General Dina Santos - On behalf of Canadian Govt. & Canadian Armed Forces
Col. Matt Churchward RM - On behalf of the British Armed Forces
Lt Cdr Nicolas Breuer - On behalf of the Royal Belgian Navy and Armed Forces of the Kingdom of Belgium
James Normington - On behalf of the British & Commonwealth Remembrance Project
Simon Boyd - On behalf of The Soldiers Fund
Peter Richardson - On behalf of the British Officers' Club of New England

James Normington piped the Last Post and the Reveille, proving that the next best thing to a Royal Marines Piper is a Yorkshireman with a brass instrument!  Bagpiper Bob Cameron piped everyone to and from the service.
