Shipston Band and Town Remember ‘the fallen’

    Once again, but this year on the centenary of the start of the ‘Great War’, the people of Shipston-on-Stour gathered to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. The Band once lead the lads to railway station as they embarked for France, on this November day they lead locals as they gathered to remember.

         This year Shipston was treated to a day of blue skys and bright sunshine as the Band lead the local branch of The Royal British Legion and local organisations to St. Edmund’s Church, where the Band were to provide the musical accompaniment to the service of remembrance and provide the “Last Post”.
