On Sunday 9th November 30 members of the Christ College Combined Cadet Force took part in the Brecon Town Remembrance parade.
On a crisp but sunny autumn morning, the cadets marched smartly alongside soldiers from the Infantry Battle School. Halting outside St Mary’s Parish Church, the cadets stood to attention as the mayoral party made their way from the Guildhall. On conclusion of the two minutes silence, the CCF Contingent Commander, Maj Ian Owen was amongst the dignitaries from the town that placed poppy wreathes at the town war Memorial outside the church.
The parade then marched to Brecon Cathedral for a service led by the Bishop of Brecon and Swansea.
Whilst being represented in the Town’s commemorations, Christ College also held its own service of remembrance to pay tribute to those Old Breconians who had paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country. The preacher was Major General, the Reverend, Morgan Llewellyn CB OBE DL. Finishing his distinguished military career as Head of UK Land Forces during the first Gulf War, Morgan Llewellyn left military service to join the Church. He returned to Brecon as Minor Canon of Brecon Cathedral, and then became Chaplain at Christ College before retiring from the post in 2001.
Following on from the service, wreaths were placed at the school’s war memorial in the Chapel yard with representatives from the Old Breconian Association, Serving Officers, CCF Staff and Christ College Staff playing a part.
On a moving and emotional day, the Christ College cadets were again exemplary ambassadors for the school.
