This year Nuneaton Air Cadets took the lead in two remembrance services
On Monday 11th of November cadets from Warwickshire and Birmingham Wing attended the Armistice Day service and parade in Bedworth. This parade is unique because the local branch of the Royal British Legion has stuck rigidly to the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month to honour the war dead every year, since the end of the First World War. Many hundreds of veterans from all over the country return to Bedworth every year to remember their comrades and meet up with many old ex-service pals.
During the march past the band of 121 ( Nuneaton ) Squadron led the cadet contingent of the parade through the streets of Bedworth.
On Sunday 14th of November the Squadron joined the ranks of veterans from the Royal British Legion and other ex-service organisations on parade at the Nuneaton War Memorial.
A large crowd stood in silent remembrance as the standards were dipped in salute as the bugler sounded the Last Post. An armed cadet honour guard stood vigil at the War memorial during the wreath laying ceremony, which was led by the Mayor of Nuneaton and Bedworth and other civic leaders, service representatives and members of ex-service organisations.
Following the service the band of 121 Squadron had the honour of leading the parade for the march past.
