Stephen Metcalfe, MP for South Basildon and East Thurrock, recently joined the Basildon Armed Forces and Veterans Breakfast Club for Remembrance Day.
On 11 November 1918, the First World War came to end. Now, 105 years later, Britain marks the day by remembering all the servicemen and women who have sacrificed their lives to protect our way of life in every conflict since that time.
On Saturday, Stephen joined the Basildon Veterans Breakfast Club to thank them for their service. The Club provides a supportive and friendly haven for veterans in the Basildon area, forging bonds that last a lifetime. It meets the second Saturday of every month.
Stephen Metcalfe said: “I was very proud to mark Remembrance Day across the constituency. There is so much support for our veterans out there and I was pleased to see so many people show their respects at Remembrance Services in honour of those local heroes who have given their lives for this country.
We must remember them and remember how fortunate we are.”
