Remembrance Sunday 100 years.


‘See to it that their names be not forgotten’

On Sunday 11th November St Leonard’s was full as we marked  100 years since the end of WW1. Seated among the congregation were ‘Silouettes’ which served as a poignant reminder of those whose lives were lost, particulary in WW1. We were also pleased to reinstate and rededicate the St Leonard’s WW1 Memorial plague at this service. It had spent 45 years stored in the Crypt and despite being one of the very few items that survived the fire, it had not been given a place on the walls of the church. 100 years on seemed an appropriate time to give it the space it desearved. This made our 2018 Remembrance service a particulary special occasion. Our thanks to both the Armed Forces Covenant Fund and the Streatham Society for the part they played in making it so.
