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.

From Laurence Binyon’s poem For the Fallen, written in September 1914


These words echoed around the country as Remembrance Parades and services were held to commemorate the ending of the First World War and to remember all those who gave their life or health for the future of their country.

Within Slough District there were multiple parades including Slough, Cippenham, Colnbrook and Langley, which all saw Scouts in attendance.
