Armistice Day

Armistice Day

A two minutes silence was held in the Cathedral at 11:00 on Wednesday 11 November.

Visitors and Regiment representatives gathered in the South East Transept to remember those who gave their lives in the service of God and neighbour; and those who currently suffer through war, and are in need.

After the two minutes silence and Act of Remembrance, pages in the Books of Remembrance were turned and poppy wreaths laid by representatives of the Buffs (the Royal East Kent Regiment), The Queen’s Regiment, The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment and their allied Regiment, The Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada, the Kent Yeomanry and the 21st Lancers.

After the Act of Remembrance representatives from the Buffs laid poppy wreaths at the foot of the new Buffs WWI Statue in the Precincts.
