Peacehaven Town Council are organising this year’s remembrance service which will take place on Sunday 11th November at Meridian Park.
The parade will muster at the Joff Car Park area at 10.00am this year and will march to the War Memorial site at 10.30am.
The first part of the service will start as soon as the parade arrives with the welcome, the reading of the war heroes’ names followed by the Exhortation.

As the notes fade away, the town will join the rest of the nation in paying our respects for two minutes.
After, the bugler will sound the Reveille the RBL standards will be raised.
The Kohima Epitaph, When you go home Tell Them of us…..will be read by Johan van Vuuren followed by the traditional laying of the wreaths by the various councils and local organisations
