Eastleigh Labour party’s prospective parliamentary candidate Mark Latham attended the Remembrance Sunday service in Eastleigh town centre.

Mark says: In glorious sunshine on a warm November morning we gathered at the Eastleigh war memorial to lay wreaths and remember the sacrifice of those who stood in harm's way to protect us over the last century. The cadet band played the last post as the cubs and scouts lowered their flags, babies cried in the crowd and it was inspiring to see how many children were engaged in the act of Remembrance. French and German Civic Leaders, former foe and friend, made heartfelt speeches about peace. The most moving part of my day was a conversation with veteran Norman Brown MBE who spoke of his brother, Les, who didn't come home from the second war. Norman, with his wife Betty, has organised the Poppy Appeal in Hampshire for the last twenty years, and at 89 years old his stentorian voice, parade ground trained no doubt, didn't need the PA, when he spoke for all of us with "we will remember them".
All members of the Eastleigh Labour party will remember those that paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect our country.
