Remembrance in Eastleigh

On Sunday 11 Nov 2013, up to 1,000 Eastleigh townsfolk joined veterans, servicemen and cadets to pay homage to the fallen of two world wars. After the ceremony, a parade lined up for a march past the Point led by the ‘Spitfires’ – the  14th Eastleigh  Scout and Guide band.

In thanks for her support of the Poppy Appeal, the Royal British Legion asked Sonia Blandford of Paul Capper Funeral Directors to place a wreath on their behalf. Sonia also marched with Richard Van Nes, Paul Capper, Jan Dodd, Andy Lavin and James Atwill during Eastleigh’s Remembrance Sunday parade.

The parade was preceded by a motorcycle cavalcade by the ‘Royal British Legion riders’.
