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”.

Our photo gallery below encompasses all of these:
