A well done to Cadet Sjt Yuill, who has been recognised by the Mayor of Warminster for his support to the Warminster poppy appeal, the town's Remembrance parade and service on 13th November.

Cadet Sjt Yuill added some historical colour to the poppy collecting on Saturday 12th, dressing as a WW2 soldier from the 2nd Battalion Oxford & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry as they appeared on D-Day in 1944.

He was then asked to represent the ACF during the Remembrance Sunday Service in reading out a section of the town's Roll of Honour for WW2. Last night he received a personal thank you letter from the mayor for his efforts.

Well done to him and well done all our Cadets who made us very proud with their efforts on Remembrance weekend. Swift & Bold

Mayors Letter reads:

Dear Matthew,

I would like to take this opportunity to pass on the thanks of the Town Council to you for attending our Remembrance Service on Sunday to read the names of the fallen. It is always one of the most poignant parts of the service and it brings a real sense of the sacrifice made by the fallen and the loss to family and friends and the community.

The service has always drawn a significant crowd and emphasises the good relations Warminster enjoys with the military. It was a pleasure to have your participation in an event which means so much to the town.

Yours sincerely

Councillor Chris Robbins

Mayor of Warminster
