Wreath laying to remember Worcestershire Regiment casualties of First World War

A wreath laying ceremony to remember the Worcestershire Regiment wounded of the First World War is to take place in Worcester.

The short ceremony, on Friday, July 19, also marks the centenary of Peace Day.

The day was designated to remember those killed and wounded in the First World War and for the country to show its gratitude and respect.

The Worcester event, at the Worcestershire Regimental Stone in Gheluvelt Park, follows a request by the Fields in Trust organisation for associations and groups to mark the day. Gheluvelt Park is the designated Field in Trust for the Worcester branch of the Worcestershire & Sherwood Foresters Regimental Association.

On the day, the parade will form up at 10.50am.

The ceremony running order will be reading of a citation, laying of a wreath, Last Post, one-minute Silence, Reveille and Fall Out.

There will be a bugler, standard bearers and association members.

Dress is berets, blazer and medals.

Anyone is welcome to attend.
