Mike Clark plays The Last Post at the Feilding Cenotaph during the Armistice Day service in Feilding.
During the days proceedings Feilding Brass did a 30 minute mini concert for the crowd sitting around the clock tower in the Feilding town square, which was well received.
Listening to stories from a gentleman whose father was in WW1, and what they went through makes us thankful for their contribution to our freedom.
Feilding Brass will be participating in today’s Armistice Centenary commemorations in the Feilding Square, as we remember the end of World War I.
Armistice Day is commemorated every year on 11 November to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o’clock in the morning—the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918.
As part of the commemorations, Feilding Brass will be performing at 12.45pm.
For those that lost their lives so we may live ours, we will remember them.
