Centenary of the end of World War I - Remembrance 100

Added 16th November 2018 by Tom Boorman

Members of the 3rd Enfield have been taking part in events to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War I in 1918.

On Monday 5th November, at our regular meeting immediately preceding Remembrance Day, our Company Section and Seniors got thinking about Remembrance. They heard about some of the 44 old boys of the 3rd Enfield who lost their lives in World War I, many of whom were not much older than those in the room.

The session was accompanied by a display of silhouettes from There But Not There, as a striking visual reminder of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the war. We are incredibly grateful to There But Not There for the silhouette installation.

On the morning of Sunday 11th November buglers from the 3rd Enfield sounded the Last Post and Reveille during the morning service at Christ Church URC. This took place at 11:00am, marking exactly 100 years to the minute since the end of World War I. The church's rolls of honour from both World Wars were read out, including many of those from the 3rd Enfield.

The same afternoon Boys' Brigade and Girls' Brigade members from across Enfield joined with a number of other uniformed organisations for the Enfield Remembrance Sunday Parade.

The BB and GB contingent consisted of nearly 100 young people and leaders and was led by the Enfield Battalion Bugle Band.

After parading to the War Memorial on Chase Green, a Service of Remembrance took place to remember those who gave their lives in war. During the service, the Last Post and Reveille were sounded by a bugle team consisting of Boys' Brigade members.

Following this wreaths were laid by local politicians and dignitaries, various organisations and members of the public. As we look back at the contribution that the 3rd Enfield made to the war effort in a number of different ways it was an honour to see Marcus, one of the 3rd Enfield's Seniors, lay a wreath on behalf of Enfield Battalion.

Following the service the parade moved through Enfield Town to the Civic Centre, where an event was hosted by Enfield's Representative Deputy Lieutenant and Mayor.

We would like to say a special thank you and well done to all of the boys who took part in these commemorative events, particularly on the Sunday where we were the largest Company on parade.
