On Sunday 10 November 2013, Valerie attended the Remembrance Sunday events at the Cenotaphs in Walsall Town Centre and in Darlaston. Valerie took part in the services and laid wreaths in memory of the fallen.
At Walsall Town Centre, Valerie took part in the Civic Procession from the Council House to the Cenotaph.
” Many people attended both events this year. With the centenary of the First World War approaching, we should remember those who gave their lives fighting for their country.”
“The Epitaph in Kohima Allied war cemetery by John Maxwell Edmonds, was read out at Darlaston and sums up why Remembrance Sunday is important: ‘When you go home, tell them of us and say, for their tomorrow, we gave our today’.”
