On the beautiful sunny morning of 9th March morning of the
Great War Society marched to the war memorial at Wolston where a guard of honour laid a wreath to remember those who gave their lives for us in the Great War. After the ceremony, which was accompanied by 'The Last Post', members of the society marched to the war memorial at Stretton on Dunsmore. They were met there by other members of the Society for a further short service, to recall the inspection there by King George V on March 7th 1915 of "the finest body of troops ever to leave the country".
