Remembrance Sunday: Southwark remembers

The official Southwark ceremony took place on Remembrance Sunday, November 8, at the monument in Borough High Street.

The ceremony was led by Southwark Mayor Dora Dixon-Fyle, and was attended by MPs Neil Coyle and Harriet Harman, Leader of Southwark Council Peter John, leader of Southwark Lib Dems Anood Al-Samerai, and Deputy Lieutenant Mrs Jenny Bianco, who was representing Her Majesty the Queen.

Former MP Simon Hughes, local councillors and representatives from old comrade societies were also in attendance.

A two minute silence was observed before wreaths were laid at the base of the Borough War Memorial. The Last Post was also played and the Ode to Remembrance read out in front of a crowd of over 100 residents paying their respects.

Other memorials were also held at other sites across the borough, including at the West Lane Memorial in Bermondsey.
