Last May, I was privileged to dedicate the Memorial Stone in the Castle grounds naming all the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire V.Cs. It was an event which meant a great deal to relatives and others as a reminder that these heroes deserve lasting public credit for their courage in the face of the enemy. At that ceremony it was fitting to remember the words of Jesus saying that “Greater love has no one than that they lay down their life for their friend” – in this case, their comrades and their country. The similar words which Col. Oldershaw read this morning, also from St John’s gospel, tell the followers of Jesus to love one another as He has loved us - which is a lot easier for all of us to say than to do. As I said, it’s good to honour the fallen as we do today. However, there are many issues about how we as a society protect those still serving, and how we pension the wounded and the widowed. I believe the Services have moved a very long way from recruiting those who only joined because there were no other jobs and treated them, to use that phrase from the First World War, as cannon fodder. But there is no room for complacency. It is we as society whom they serve and we as society have a heavy duty of responsibility.

All three principal morning services in the parish observe the traditional Act of Remembrance on this day, when we remember all those who have died, and those who continue to fight, in conflicts across the world.  A silence is observed  at 11am (the time, on 11th November 1918, when the armistice was signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany, ceasing hostilies and bringing World War I to an end).  The services at St Mary's and at St Peter's are led by the church choirs, and include the traditional bugle calls to signify the start and end of the two minute silence.  The Eucharist is celebrated at St Mary's at 6.30pm, in a solemn service in commemoration of the faithful departed that includes Gabriel Fauré's moving setting of the Requiem Mass.
