Armistice Day 2023
We will remember them
At the tolling of the bell of HMS Marlborough and the sounding of an air raid siren Marlborough paused to hold a 2-minute silence.
After the commemorations at the Town Hall, where Councillors were joined by Mr Pradeep Bhardwaj, High Sheriff of Wiltshire, Ninna Gibson, DL and Officers and soldiers from 4 Military Intelligence Battalion, wreaths were laid at the memorial to the Savernake Explosion and the 7th Battalion Wiltshire Regiment. The Mayoral party also placed poppies on 11 Commonwealth War graves in the town's two cemeteries. This year a poppy was also placed to remember Gunner Albert Cox, buried in Germany but remembered on his family grave.
