Armistice Day at Stationers' Hall

Wreaths are laid at the plaque commemorating Stationers who fell inthe Great War

It has become traditional for the office team to get together with the Cutlers at 11.00 am on 11 November each year to lay wreaths to remember those who gave their lives for our freedom today. Yesterday was no exception and although the Master and Clerk were at SCWA for their act of remembrance. Rupert Meacher, Clerk to the Cutlers recited 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

taken from the poem  For the Fallen by Laurence Binyon and Giles Fagan joined with him to lay the two wreaths below the plaque commemorating Stationers who died in the Great War.
