If you want to march with the Burnley Parade. The assembly area is at Marks and Spencer  @ 10.20. am as usual and will March to the Peace Garden Memorial at 10.35 for the  Remembrance Service.


           Please note: Wreath laying: Because of the increasing numbers of the public who would like to lay a wreath. The time spent on wreath laying has increased to the point where much more service time is required. We the Branch therefore would ask members of the public to lay their tributes after the Veterans and other organisations have marched off the peace garden. The Royal British Legion will assist if you need help. Please also note that the memorial gardens will have a new look this year.

We will place smaller white crosses in the garden with names of those killed in action.

These crosses replace the older wooden ones paid for by donations in the past.

The older wooden crosses were no longer sustainable. The Branch is responsible for remembrance-tide. This year to emphasise our diversty and acknowledgement of all our allies the garden theme will be 'Remember together' The gardens will reflect that theme.

The Theme for Remembrance-tide this year is:


Thank you.   Billy Allott. (Branch Chairman.)
