2010 cenotaph order of serviceWFA member Roy Backhouse kindly agreed to act as the WFA's official photographer on 11 November 2010 at the WFA's Annual Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph.

I am sure you will agree he has produced some splendid images to help us remember the day and all that it meant to everyone who was there at the Cenotaph and at the subsequent service held at the Guards' Chapel thereafter.

The images also include photographs from the WFA's post-Service lunch, held each year at Peelers at New Scotland Yard. You'll see the WFA's Chairman, Bruce Simpson, giving his thanks to four stalwarts who have been long involved in the organisation of the Service and the events of the day. They are:

  • Les Carter
  • Maurice Johnson
  • Tom Miles
  • Stuart Bufton

Each was awarded a Certificate of Honorary Membership of the Association in recognition of their contribution to the WFA over many years.

The WFA's President, Correlli Barnett, also added his appreciation of their work on this significant day of days for The Western Front Association.
