Remembrance Sunday in Neath - 2013
Neath celebrated Remembrance Sunday in glorious autumn sunshine,
It was well attended and good to see so many youngsters taking part this year.
Also paying their respects to those who sacrificed their lives for their country
Neath town Mayor Mark Fisher
Rt. Hon Peter Hain MP
Cllr. Leader Ali Thomas
Gwenda Thomas AM
And other council dignitaries
The service was conducted by
Canon Stephen Ryan, Rector of Neath.
The generation who fought in World War One are no longer with us, but their passing means we must not stop remembering the sacrifice they made, we will continue to honour them on this and every Remembrance Sunday.
While that generation has passed, sadly war and conflict are still with us and so this event still has relevance in the 21st Century.
Service men and women from across Wales and the UK are currently on active duty in Afghanistan.
In recent decades armed forces personnel have lost their lives in places like Bosnia, Northern Ireland and Iraq.
By taking a small amount of time out of our day we can pay our respects and make sure their sacrifice is not forgotten.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them
Lest we forget
