The Royal Air Force Museum Cosford will hold a service of remembrance on Sunday 11 November. Visitors are invited to join the service, which will be led by the station chaplain at RAF Cosford. Those attending will also be treated to renditions from the Cosford Military Wives Choir, who will perform for visitors on arrival and during the service.
The event will take place in the museum’s Hangar 1. Attendees are politely requested to assemble no later than 10.30hrs ready for the service to start at 10.45. As well as readings, there will be hymns and the sounding of the Last Post, followed by a two-minute silence.
Students from Castle Bromwich Junior School in Birmingham will be in attendance, reading poems they have written especially for the service. A wall of poems written by the students will go on display in the museum’s ‘War in the Air’ Hangar over the remembrance period for visitors to view.
Wreaths will be laid by representatives from RAF Cosford, RAF Museum staff and volunteers, the Cosford Military Wives Choir and Castle Bromwich Junior School to recall those who have fallen in the line of duty. Following the service, visitors are free to explore the museum at their own leisure.
