Remembrance Sunday parade

Last year Louise was proud to walk in her local Remembrance parade. The parade made its way through Mytholmroyd to the local war memorial, where a short service was held.

During World War 2 Louise’s granddad was posted to Africa, Italy, Germany and France. He was awarded medals for his service. Louise is very proud of her grandfather and loves to tell people about him. She was privileged to wear her Grandfather’s medals in the parade.

Louise’s granddad’s medals

Her grandfather is not the only hero in her family, her Great Uncle fought and sadly died in World War 1. He was an Officer in the Black Watch. Louise chose to celebrate his contribution and their heritage by also wearing her Tam o’Shanter hat in the colours of the Black Watch.

At the service after the parade

Louise returned to her home town last year. As part of the move she expressed that she would like to restart attending church. Louise has since become a regular attendee at St Michael’s Parish Church. She is well known by the local congregation as she was previously a choir singer for six years and a bell-ringer for two. Louise loves to sing and knows many of the hymns without having to look at the hymn book! She enjoys enjoys seeing everyone each week.
