Members of the Christ College Combined Cadet Force played their part in Brecon Town’s Remembrance Parade and Service on Sunday. Marching behind the regular soldiers and band, the Cadets formed up outside the cenotaph at St Mary’s Parish Church under the watchful eye of Cadet SSI, WO1 Bevan. Contingent Commander, Major Ian Owen led the cadets and laid the poppy wreath on behalf of the school. Following on from this the cadets marched through town to the Cathedral for the service of remembrance.
Back at Christ College, the younger CCF cadets attended the school’s service of remembrance. With the names of all of the Old Breconians who made the ultimate sacrifice read out, it was a moving and suitably respectful service. Names were read by senior cadets, the Head of Christ College, Mrs Emma Taylor and Old Breconian and School Governor, Mr Andrew Lewis. The contingent’s colours were presented to the chaplain, along with the school’s book of remembrance by Cdt Sgt Shrestha. The preacher was retired RAF Chaplain Rev Ian Thomas, father of two Old Breconians.
After the service, the congregation, choir, Christ College pupils and cadets paid their respects outside at the school’s war memorial while wreaths were laid on behalf of the school, Old Breconians and the CCF. Special thanks to LAC James Gill, Old Breconian who laid the wreath on behalf of the Old Breconian Association.
