Ruislip Eastcote Northwood (REN) Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and their Leaders turned out on Sunday 10th November to the four memorial sites in our District: Ruislip, Eastcote, Northwood and Mad Bess Woods Open Air Chapel.
Wreaths were laid, and a two-minute silence respectfully held at each of the four war memorial sites. There was the sounding of the Last Post, readings, and hymns.
During the ceremonies in Ruislip, Eastcote and Northwood civic dignitaries, ex-servicemen and women, members of local armed forces regular and reserve units as well as local organisations, groups and schools placed wreaths at the Memorials.
At Mad Bess Open Air Chapel, the service was led by 12th Ruislip Scout Group. The Chapel is dedicated to the memory of the youth of Ruislip who gave their lives in the second world war1939-1945. The 1st Ruislip Scout Group under their founder Dr W Max Wilson conceived this idea which also perpetuated the memory of their 20 members who fell.
