Remembrance Sunday at St Bride's 10th November

It is traditional for the Master to attend the Remembrance Service at St Bride's Church and to lay a wreath at the altar in Company with other Masters. 

It was a beautiful service with an orchestra and superb trumpeter to play the Last Post and Reveille.  The service included a full rendition of Faure's Requiem - always popular and very moving in a service of this type.

Afterwards, the consort and I, and the Senior Warden adjourned to Hush in Ludgate Hill to enjoy a convivial lunch with the Stationers Company.  

Then we had to bid our farewells to get down to our home village of Tilmanstone Kent where I was due to deliver a sermon at our own Remembrance Service which is always conducted as an evensong - fitting in well with my duties each year in London.
