Marlow Remembers

11-11-2018 marked 100 years since Armistice Day, and Marlow certainly turned out in large numbers to pay their respects at the Remembrance Service and Parade – a very moving event.

There was also a moving ceremony at Marlow Rowing Club. With local dignitaries and military representatives in attendance, 19 rowers held blades to represent the 19 club members who lost their lives,  as a new boat was named “Lest we forget”. 

Borlase School also had various displays an performances. There were 58 ex pupils and 4 staff members lost to WW1. One room had biographies and photos of them – lots of effort clearly went into the research. Just one photo of the 1912-13 football team contains 4 of the Borlase fallen. 

Our photo gallery below encompasses all of these:
