Following the CCF's involvement in the Headmaster's remembrance assemblies, the CCF were involved in other significant Acts of Remembrance.

Mayor of London's Service of Remembrance

Six cadets from Wilson's and six from WHSG acted as ushers for this event at Southwark Cathedral, attending the Mayor's Reception afterwards and meeting Sadiq Khan, Major-General Chris Ghika General Officer Commanding London District and Col Ian Denison, Col Cadets, along with many of the Mayors of various London Boroughs and dignitaries from the Armed Forces and the GLA. Col Denison was impressed with the turnout, confidence and good manners of the cadets.

Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall

Cadet Colour Sergeants Phillips and Weerakkody had the honour of taking part in the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall. The CEO of Surrey ACF, Commander Haines, wrote to Cadets Branch at Regional Command saying "They had a great, although very long, day but they were immaculate throughout and were an absolute credit to the CCF(Army)."

Croydon Act of Civic Remembrance, Croydon Minster and Town Hall

Twenty cadets provided a guard of honour for the dignitaries attending a Service of Remembrance at Croydon Minster. The balance of the Contingent 142 cadets and a number of CFAVs paraded in North End marching to the Croydon Cenotaph. CSgt Guha carried the Banner of the Corps and FSgt Chodyko laid a wreath on behalf of the School and the Contingent.

Lt Col Burton, the Contingent Commander, commented that it was great to see Wilson's students also representing other uniformed organisations on this parade and to hear about them parading elsewhere.
