On this Remembrance weekend, November 2023, members of the McAndrew Martin Family honoured and remembered those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
On Saturday 11th November, Rab Bailie, Tina Davies, Tara Payton & Pauline Hatchard took part in the inaugural Southampton Poppy Walk around Royal Victoria Park near Netley Abbey, as organised by the Royal British Legion.
Following a two minute silence, observed at 11:00, the team successfully completed the task. Each team member was presented with a “medal” and a RBL goodie bag in recognition of their efforts.
Rab Bailie, the Director of UK Operations, coordinated a donation page through which family, friends, and colleagues generously contributed £405 for the RBL charity.
“It is not the critic who counts… The credit belongs to those who actually enter the arena, whose faces are marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strive valiantly …who spend themselves in a worthy cause, and if they fall, at least fall while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat” –
n Saturday, 11th November, Jim Green, Client Relationship Manager, had the privilege of attending the moving, yet excellent, Festival of Remembrance, at the Royal Albert Hall.
Continuing his remembrance activities, on Sunday 12th, Jim joined fellow members of the Royal Marines Association for a remembrance service and participated in the march past the Cenotaph.
Whilst we remember those that did not come home, it is equally important to remember those that have returned with life changing injuries, both mentally and physically. The Royal British Legion provide lifelong support to serving and ex-serving personnel and their families. Wear your poppy with pride.
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.”
