We of the Armistice Committee believe that pupils should learn about the men and women who have served our great country, sacrificing their lives when needed. Although Armistice Day was originally to remember those who fell in the Great War (World War 1), it now encompasses all those who have lost in fields of conflict around the world in the service of our country. We are proud of Bedworth and all its residents who have helped make the Bedworth Armistice Day Parade and Service the biggest in Britain.
The Armistice Committee can arrange for a speaker to come to your school and talk about the origins of the Bedworth Armistice, the Tribute Wall, the Remembrance Gates, the Cenotaph in the Cemetery and the Saluting Dais.
Contact our Parade Marshal for details.
