A fine crisp morning for the Remembrance Sunday service at the war memorial in Greenford Broadway. Unusually it fell on Armistice Day this year. The parade formed at the Royal British Legion in Oldfield Lane North then marched along Coston’s Lane, Greenford Road and Greenford Broadway, halting in front of the war memorial. The police re-directed traffic and set up rolling road blocks along the route. Wreaths were laid by local dignitaries as well as individual crosses. A considerable crowd attended the service, representing a wide range of ages, nationalities and faiths. Greenford’s war memorial was unveiled on the 12th June 1921 in remembrance of the nineteen local men killed in the Great War.
