Leo joined hundreds of local residents, including many serving and veteran members of our Armed Forces, for ceremonies Remembrance Sunday in Aldershot to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War on Sunday 11th November 2018. He attended the service, wreath laying and march past at the Royal Garrison Church of All Saints, as well as the wreath laying at The Cenotaph in Municipal Gardens.
Leo said: "I had the honour of attending services across Aldershot this Remembrance Sunday as the local community came together to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice. I was so pleased to see hundreds of people, of all ages, attending these ceremonies and paying their respects to all those who gave their lives so that we could be free. A sombre but uplifting day, I had the privilege of paying respects and lay wreaths at The Cenotaph and Royal Garrison Church on behalf of the people of the Aldershot Constituency. Thank you to all those involved in the organisation of these services."
'When you go home, tell them of us and say,
for your tomorrow, we gave our today.'
