On days like Remembrance Day, people in Plymouth and across the UK stop to remember those who have fallen in war and conflict, and all those who have served in our Armed Forces.
Luke Pollard MP attended two Remembrance Day services, in the morning he laid a wreath on the GWR Poppy Train. The wreaths, which were collected from across the country were then laid at Paddington Train Station.
Luke also attended a Remembrance Day service at Lipson Academy, it was the first time that the entire school attended an outdoor act of remembrance together.
“As the son of a submariner and Member of Parliament for our proud naval city, Remembrance Day services are always a privilege to attend.
I was immensely honoured to lay a wreath on the Poppies to Paddington service alongside the Lord Mayor of Plymouth and military representatives, which collected wreaths from right across the country to be laid by the statue of the Unknown Soldier at Paddington Train Station.
It was also a pleasure to join students for their Remembrance Day service at Lipson academy, where the tributes were impressively led by members of Lipson Academy Combined Cadet Force.
We owe all that we hold dear today to the courage and bravery of those who sacrificed so much during the course of conflicts.
We will never forget them.”
