2014 Memorial Day

On an overcast day the 2014 Memorial Day was held at Clandon Park near Guildford on Monday 30th June.

At 3pm the Reverend John Ackland, an Honorary Life Member of the Fund, started the ceremony by welcoming 165 family and friends of our dear colleagues who have sadly passed away whilst in service or since retirement.

Following two minutes of silent tribute and remembrance, wreaths were laid in memory.
