Councillor Eileen Leask, The Mayor of South Tyneside, said: “I’m very proud of the way the people of South Tyneside came out in their numbers to help remember our fallen heroes.

“It’s important that we never forget the invaluable work the Armed Forces deliver on our behalf and the immense level of bravery they show when serving Queen and Country.

 

"It was fitting that the sun shone brightly in the sky, as we all bowed our heads in memory and celebration of those people’s achievements.”

HUNDREDS of people attended this year’s Remembrance Day service in Stockton.
The town’s mayor, Lynne Apedaile, said there were more people lining the High Street than for a number of years.
Following the laying of wreaths at the cenotaph an innovative service was held at Stockton Parish Church.
Coun Apedaile, who took the salute, said: “We had a power point presentation in the church which commemorated those we have lost in recent years as well as in times past. It was very moving. There were interviews with both people serving in our armed forces now and veterans. It really made it relevant to families whose men and women are serving today. I’m told that as well as more people there were more wreaths laid than for a long time.”
Alex Cunningham, MP for Stockton North, tweeted: “More people than ever for Remembrance Sunday today. Strong evangelical sermon  from Alan Farrish on sacrifice and losing a child.”

I'd like to leave a tribute to my great grandfather John Frederick Victor Atkinson. He flew for the Royal Flying Corps in the WW1 and died many years later from shrapnel lodged close to his heart.

Also my great great uncle George Ross who died in a London hospital after taking shrapnel on the battlefields of France.
