Our Act of Remembrance

Our Act of Remembrance

St Margaret’s Primary School children gathered together at 11am with staff and governors for the Act of Remembrance. Following poems from Samuel and Emma – our head boy and girl – we listened to the Last Post and all fell silent for a minute.

We were especially delighted to welcome Tony Golden whose great uncle, Lance Corporal Harry Cheeseman died of wounds in 1915 rescuing wounded comrades on the battlefield.

Harry and his 10 siblings lived in the Red Lion Pub in the village (now the florist) and he and his brothers played for Angmering FC in 1912. Following our Act of Remembrance we gave 3 cheers for Lance Corporal Harry Cheeseman and the children doffed their hats. Harry is buried in St Margaret’s churchyard and a group of children will shortly be attending to his grave.

Harry Cheeseman is one of many names on the war memorial in the village.
