FOLLOWING their involvement in the School Remembrance Assemblies, the CCF were involved in two other significant Acts of Remembrance over the course of the weekend.

On Friday, thirteen NCOs and Cadets from both Wilson's and Wallington High School for Girls were invited to act as stewards for The Mayor of London's Remembrance Service at City Hall. They began the day by showing representatives of the armed forces and from all the boroughs of Greater London to a reception and then escorted them to the service in the Chamber of City Hall. Following a poignant and moving service, they made their way to the London Living Room on the top floor of City Hall where they sold Poppies to the guests and had a chance to chat with amongst others General Officer Commanding London District, and Sadiq Khan, The Mayor of London. They were thanked for their service and professionalism.

On Sunday around 90 cadets from both Schools and both sections of the CCF were involved in Croydon's act of civic remembrance. In the morning 38 of that number provided a guard of honour for the Mayor of Croydon and Col McRobbie, Deputy Lieutenant for Croydon. In the afternoon all 90 marched with the reserve, police, fire service and other cadets and youth organisations to Croydon Town Hall where wreaths were laid on behalf of the School and the Corps. It was gratifying to see young Wilson's students parading with both the Sea Cadets and the Police Cadets.
