A letter to the Bury Times
I wish to express my most grateful thanks to all those who took part in this year's Remembrance Parade and Church Service in Bury.

It was, without doubt, the largest that I can remember over many years and it was most rewarding to see so many young people in attendance. The public, in general, are to be congratulated on such a large turnout for this very special day to old soldiers and those currently serving.

Early indications are that the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal could secure a bumper collection. Once again, I am most grateful to all those who have given so generously.

Lieutenant Colonel (retired) Eric Davidson Parade Marshall and Honorary Poppy Appeal Organiser
