President Mary Spinks laid the wreath on behalf of the Rotary Club of Maidenhead during this year’s Remembrance Sunday service at the war memorial outside the town hall.
Mary joined representatives from Maidenhead Thames and Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Clubs, and other voluntary organisations for the outdoor ceremony on Sunday 13th November.
The participating organisations (which included the emergency services, scouts and guides) first marched from Bridge Avenue to St Ives Road led by contingents from the army, air force and sea cadets.
A bugler played the Last Post and Reveille, and the service included hymns and the national anthem accompanied by the Salvation Army band.
Mary said: “It was a great privilege to lay the wreath on behalf of all members of Maidenhead Rotary Club at the war memorial and participate in the solemn service of remembrance.
"It was a very moving occasion as always. It brought home just how much we owe those who lost their lives in wars, which continue today so it would appear we have not learned our lesson.
“My husband was a Lancaster bomber pilot in the Second World War and it reminded me how lucky we were that he came home and we had 40 years together.”
