Last Sunday saw W.Bro. George Reynolds lay a wreath on behalf of the Mark Province of Monmouthshire at the cenotaph in Newport. W.Bro. George, formerly of the Royal Horse Artillery, the only WW2 veteran on parade and in his 101st year, stepped forward with great dignity and solemnity to pay his tribute to the fallen, assisted by W.Bro. Jonathan Roberts, Dep.G.D.C.

Such is the affection for W.Bro. George among the people of Newport and beyond that his presence at the cenotaph in Newport quickly drew applause when he arrived ahead of the 11 o’clock Act of Remembrance – a true celebrity!

Well done and thank you, George. Your fortitude and determination is a lesson and an encouragement to us all.
