Christopher reports from the Royal Albert Hall: This weekend I was honoured to represent the CCF in the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall. It was an incredible event drawing people from across Britain’s services to remember those who have given their lives for our freedom. We started the ceremony by marching with the other national standard bearers through the Hall to the stage. From there we could watch the rest of the festival, seeing phenomenal performances from the Royal Marine Drum Corps and Joint Services Band. The most poignant part of the ceremony was when the parents of soldiers who had died in combat walked out across the Hall.
The energy in the Hall was indescribable. I feel very honoured to have been part of such an incredible Act of Remembrance made especially important due to the 100 year anniversary of the armistice.
