Mayville Primary School

Leytonstone London, | 6 Jul 2015

 

When we were at the Commemoration Service, we had to dress very smartly as we were commemorating a very important battle and we had to be very respectful to the many who died. We heard the memorable letters/diaries (written by some of the soldiers).In between the readings we sang some hymns as the organ music played. My favourite and most memorable reading was about was about two soldiers; one of them knew he would not survive so the two soldiers exchanged addresses and agreed that if one of them should die, the other would send their last letter to their wife. Sadly twenty-five minutes into the battle one of the soldiers was shot down by his new friend's side. We also saw the Duchess of Cornwall-who smiled at us-, as well as Prince Charles. Not only this but we saw the present Prime Minister, David Cameron. The many soldiers, in bearskins, marched down the centre of the knave with their flags in memory of the battle, they also stood still down the entrance stairs.
