World War 1 Commemoration event held at The Gateway in Aylesbury

| November 12, 2018

People across Buckinghamshire came out on Sunday 11th November 2018 to honour and remember those who lost their lives in World War One.

Special events and commemorations took place in towns and villages across Buckinghamshire as the whole nation marked the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.

In Aylesbury, in addition to the traditional services and wreath-laying a number of other events took place including bell ringing, beacon-lighting and bugle playing.

In the afternoon The Gateway played host to a special Thank You event organised jointly by local councils, the Royal British Legion and other partners. It featured live music, poetry readings, stall and displays, ration lunches and afternoon teas.

Speaking afterwards, Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher HM Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire said: ‘It has been wonderful to see so many people of all ages come out to show their appreciation for the men and women of the World War One generation and the sacrifices they made.
