Shonet, the company that looks after our database and record keeping, have posted this tribute on their website:
“On the 11th of November 2023, ShoNet had the profound honour of being invited for the second consecutive year to participate in the War Widows Association Service of Remembrance. The experience was both humbling and deeply moving, as we came together to pay tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom
I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the War Widows Association for extending the invitation and providing an opportunity to stand in solidarity with war widows and their families. It was a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by our servicemen and women and the lasting impact on their loved ones.
The solemn ceremony allowed us to reflect on the immeasurable contributions of those who have served our nation and the resilience of the families left behind. It’s crucial that we continue to support and honour the war widows, acknowledging the strength it takes to navigate life after such profound loss.
Let us carry the spirit of remembrance beyond this day, fostering a culture of gratitude and support for our veterans and their families. Together, we can ensure that their sacrifices are never forgotten.
Lest we forget
