On this day throughout the country, the Royal British Legion had arranged for branches to meet for a short act of remembrance on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the end of the war against Japan, and the 2nd World War. Where there were bells which could be rung, they were asked to toll 75 times at 11a.m. At All Saints’ church, Wrington, this was carried out by Philip Kinsman, tower captain. The Rector, the Revd David Gent attended the event, and branch members participating included Jim Swords who introduced it, Standard Bearer John Gallop and Poppy Collection organiser Judith Gallop, Helen Kell, who read a passage from the Bible, and Chris Clark who read the Kohima Epitaph, and Albert Owers who laid the wreath.
