Ledbury will remember those that have served in conflicts at three ceremonies to take place over the Remembrance weekend.

The Town’s Act of Remembrance will take place at the Town’s War Memorial on Sunday November 10. The service will start at 10.40am and wreaths will be laid by The Royal British Legion, Ledbury’s mayor, Cllr Phillip Howells, and other local organisations and individuals.

On Armistice Day, Monday November 11, a simple Act of Remembrance will take place at the Town’s War Memorial at 10.55am with silence being observed at 11am - the exact time the guns fell silent 101 years ago.

At 10.30am on November 11, immediately prior to the Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial, a plaque will be unveiled by Cllr Howells on the site where Ledbury Drill Hall stood. The site is now the location of the Co-op supermarket.

Colonel Andy Taylor, Rifles County Colonel For Herefordshire, said: “Ledbury Drill Hall stood in New Street from about 1910 until it was demolished in the 1980s.

"It was the base for the Territorial soldiers of The Herefordshire Regiment, Herefordshire Light Infantry and Light Infantry (Volunteers) and during those 70 years countless men from Ledbury and the surrounding district paraded and trained there.

“In 1914 and 1939 the Territorial Army was mobilised. Men were called up for war service and marched to war from the Drill Hall. In the Second World War the Drill War was a battalion HQ for the local Home Guard. It became a centre for social activities with a club, sports teams and hosted regular dances.

“The memory of the Drill Hall is held dear by many local people, but these memories are slowly fading into the past.

"To remember the soldiers who paraded there and to mark the hall’s place in the community, the memorial plaque is being installed.”
