A return visit to Hay-On-Wye today with the Royal British Legion Hay on Wye Branch for the Memorial Service of Pte John Lacey Morgan. It was 100 yrs this week that Pte Morgan of the 2nd Bn Monmouth Regiment was Killed in Action at the 4th Battle of Ypres on 12th April 1918, age 19 yrs.
Many family members contributed to the memorial service at the town Cenotaph.
An honour to be part of this service playing "Flowers of the Forest" & "Amazing Grace". "Oft in the Stilly Night" was also played & is heard annually at the Festival of Remembrance in London.
