Today marks 103 years since the end of the First World War, and Councillors from the Medway Labour and Co-operative Group have paid their respects to soldiers who lost their lives in that conflict and in other wars since then.
Cllr Alex Paterson, Medway Labour’s Armed Forces Champion, said:
“Today I joined the entire nation in observing the moment of silence and remembering the sacrifices made by generations past and present in the defence of our country.
“I shall also be placing a wreath on behalf of the Rochester Labour Councillors at the Cathedral on Sunday. We will remember them.”
Cllr Jo Howcroft-Scott, representative for Luton and Wayfield, said:
“I attended a remembrance event in Chatham this morning. In my own family, just like in many other families, there are personal tragedies because of the wars. Men and women had their lives taken too soon. It is only right that today and everyday we remember those from Britain, the Commonwealth and across the world who have lost their lives in war.”
