Press Release

03 November 2014

War veterans remembered

The Mayor of Fareham today unveiled four more names of those who lost their lives in WW2, which have been added to the war memorial at Holy Trinity Church.

The four names had been found after the Council undertook research to find war heroes who lived in Fareham.  The names include:

Reverend Sally Davenport said a prayer and blessed the memorial to honour those fallen soldiers. The Mayor of Fareham, Cllr David Norris, then unveiled the names in front of family members of the soldiers.

 

The Mayor of Fareham, Cllr David Norris said: "This is a fitting tribute to honour those soldiers from Fareham who fought and died in WW2. It is so important that we remember them and pay our respects, not only during Remembrance Week but also throughout the weeks and years that follow."

ENDS
