Remembrance Day in Henfield
Brighton and Hove City Brass continued their 2018 engagements in the beautiful West Sussex town of Henfield on 11th November
as part of the town's Remembrance Day Service.
The band headed a massed march (at 75 beats a minute) from the War Memorial to St Peters Church.
The parade included ex and current servicemen and women, various brownie, guide and scout packs plus a large number of local residents.
It was standing room only in St Peters during a moving and powerful morning service.
The accompanying 5 hymns were wonderful especially For Those in Peril on the Sea which was sung with gusto by the huge congregation.
The service was completed with a spell binding Last Post and Reveille from our experienced cornet player Martin Shelley.
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month the nation fell silent for two minutes.
A huge crowd around Henfield’s War Memorial paid their respects to servicemen and woman who had died in the line of duty.
As wreaths were being laid at the Memorial the band played Elgar’s Nimrod which was perfect for the moment.
Especially as the sun came out from behind the dark clouds.
The band can be very proud of participating so richly in such an important event.
2018 is rapidly coming to a climax and Brighton and Hove City Brass can now look forward to an exciting and packed Christmas programme.
