AT THE GOING DOWN OF THE SUN AND IN THE MORNING, WE WILL REMEMBER THEM

                          When you go home,

                          Tell them of us and say,

                          For your tomorrow

                          We gave our today.

The Kohima Epitaph

They shall not grow old as we  who are left grow old,

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn;

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.

The parade marches through Bedworth town centre before forming up in the Cemetery for the Armistice service; after which the parade marches along the Rye Piece Ringway where the salute is taken, wheeling left at the Pin Island to re-enter the pedestrian zone and dismisses at The Alms Houses.
