Stephen Metcalfe, MP for South Basildon & East Thurrock, showed his respect and solidarity with the Armed Forces in Acts of Remembrance across the constituency at the weekend.
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 attended the Remembrance Service at Orsett’s War Memorial with Chadwell St Mary’s Branch of the Royal British Legion. Stephen, together with the local mayor (Mayor Sue Little pictured) and local councillors (Councillor Barry Johnson pictured), laid poppy wreaths.
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.”
