Remembrance Sunday in Brockenhurst

Cottage Lodge Hotel is next door to the War Memorial in Brockenhurst. We are also very proud to be the home of the British Legion Brockenhurst Branch founded in 1849. Once a month our lovely war veterans join us for a meeting.

So it is with great pleasure that we invite locals and visitors alike to come into the Cottage Lodge grounds to watch the wreaths being laid and observe the 2 minutes silence at 11am on Remembrance Sunday and remember the amazing men and women who preserve our freedom.

I have pleasure in enclosing a little bit of history of the Brockenhurst War Memorial below. It is taken from the war memorials hampshire website. Pictures by the Imperial War Museums and War Memorials Online.

Roll of Honour

1939 They left all that was dear to them,

endured hardship, faced danger,

and finally passed out of the sight of man.

Let them that come after see to it that

their names be not forgotten.
