Caroline Flint joins Thorne Remembrance Service

Caroline Flint joined Cllr Susan Durant, Cllr Mark Houlbrook, veterans and community groups for the Service of Remembrance in THORNE.jpgThorne.

Susan Durant, Mayor of Thorne & Moorends and Cllr Mark Houlbrook, also a parish councillor also took a salute from the parade after the wreath laying ceremony in the Memorial Park.

Said Caroline: "Over 200 people joined the Remembrance Service in Thorne and I was proud to stand with local councillors Mark and Susan in honour of our fallen.

"The Thorne memorial lists over 150 men who died in the two world wars; including at the great battles of Ypres and the Somme.  These were young men who died in the service of their country."

Records show that the oldest of Thorne's heroes lost in conflict was just 45 years old.  Most were just young men.

The Thorne Remembrance Service was followed by a church service at St Nicholas Church
