A welcome break from wet weather was appreciated by about 40 local residents and others from further afield who gathered at the Charlotteville war memorial in Addison Road for the annual Saturday act of remembrance and laying of poppy wreaths on Saturday afternoon, November 11. 

The service of remembrance at the Charlotteville war memorial on Saturday, November 11, 2023.

The service was conducted by the Revd Rod Pierce of Holy Trinity Church and included the Last Post, two-minute silence and Reveille played by bugler Brian Cohen.

Anthony Jacques recited the Ode of Remembrance and Josh Goodwin recited The Kohima Epitaph.  

Val Compton, and her husband Nigel, commemorated Val’s Newman relatives.

At the end of the service, the gathering was welcomed into the Addison Court lounge for refreshments.

A poster display by Ian Nicholls presented the stories of those who served and some history of the community of St Luke’s.

The Charlotteville War Memorial website has been moved to a new host. It can now be found at
