Officer Cadets and staff at Britannia Royal Naval College joined members of the public to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice serving their country on Sunday 11 November 2012.

Naval personnel from the College marched in the Remembrance Day Parade in Dartmouth, organised by the local branch of the Anzac Club.  After a Service of Remembrance in the College chapel, two platoons made up of approximately 40 Cadets marched to the Guildhall, where the Mayor of Dartmouth inspected the parade.  They then marched to Royal Avenue Gardens where a two minute silence was observed followed by a wreath laying ceremony at the War Memorial. 

Captain Jerry Kyd, the Commanding Officer of BRNC laid the wreath on behalf of the Royal Navy.  He said:  “Honouring those who have given their lives while serving their country is as important today as it has ever been.  It’s a chance for us to remember their bravery and give thanks for their sacrifice.  For our Officer Cadets new to the Royal Navy, this will be their first experience of Remembrance Sunday in uniform.  Initial Naval Training is designed to instil the Royal Navy’s core values of commitment, courage, discipline, respect for others, integrity and loyalty.  All those who have died while serving in the Armed Forces are fine examples of these values.”

Personnel from BRNC also attended the Remembrance Day commemorations laying wreaths during services held in Townstall, Brixham, Dittisham, Kingswear, Kingsbridge and Totnes.
