Marking Remembrance Day

Each regiment in the Corps marked 11 Nov with their own acts of Remembrance, but there was an extra special part to play for two members of 17 Port & Maritime Regt.

Sgt Beaney and Pte Gumble helped escort the Torch of Remembrance at this year’s Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall, where Her Majesty The Queen and other senior royals were in attendance.

They were selected for the honour following their part in the relief effort to the BVIs in 2015 and to represent the most recent efforts in the Bahamas onboard RFA Mounts Bay.

Sgt Beaney said: “It is an absolute privilege for us to be representing the Regt and the RFA Mounts Bay on behalf of all personnel involved with the relief effort. The event itself is the perfect way to honour the memories of our fallen.”

In addition to this special moment, the Regt held its own parade in camp. Soldiers and officers also attended a number of services across the New Forest, including the New Forest District Council parade in Lyndhurst.
