and live on Freeview channel 276
The Hillmorton Branch of the Royal British Legion has finally laid up its much used and venerated standard and replaced it with a new standard which was dedicated at a special church service at Saint John the Baptist.
It was taken by the Rev Anne Marie Marsh at the Hillmorton Church.
Chair of Hillmorton Royal British Legion, Kathryn Lawrence, said: “The standard is a sign of our duty to our King and country and is a symbol of the services that the Royal British Legion provides. Hillmorton branch welcomes new members, and you don’t have to have served in the military to be a member.”
The standard bearer for the day was Ian Picker, and the escorts were President Ken Brand, Ted Brightwell, and John Dacombe. The exhortation was made by Kathryn Lawrence.
