The Remembrance Day parade through the town centre and service at the Cenotaph in Bradford Place will take place on Sunday 12 November 2023. Residents can go along and watch the parade and take part in the service, which is attended by military veterans and armed forces representatives.
The parade will begin at 10.25am in Hatherton Road and Hatherton Street and it will take a route past the Council House, and down Lichfield Street, Lower Bridge Street, The Bridge and Bradford Street, arriving at the Cenotaph in Bradford Place at 10.35am.
Music will be provided by the Staffordshire Band and the parade will feature representatives from 159 Theatre Support Company, Cheshire Regiment Association, Mercian Volunteers Regimental Association, Walsall Sea Cadets, Queen Mary’s Grammar School Combined Cadet Force and various uniformed youth organisations.
The service commences at 10.40am in the Cenotaph Garden and the service will be amplified, and a sign language interpreter will relay it for the hard of hearing.
The two-minute silence will be observed at 11am.
A bugler from the Staffordshire Band will sound ‘The Last Post’ and the ‘Reveille’, and rifle salutes before and after the silence will be delivered by reservist soldiers from HQ Company 4 Mercian.
Wreaths will then be laid at the Cenotaph.
At the conclusion of the service, the parade will return via the same route to the Council House, where the Mayor of Walsall will take the salute and mace bearers and standard bearers will flank the saluting base. The Mayor of Walsall will then place a wreath at the John Carless VC Memorial.
