Routes of Remembrance

We are proud that two of our Association members were privileged to take wreaths to London as part of the Routes of Remembrance initiative by The Veterans Charity and train providers.

Barbara McGregor travelled by train from her home in Bridgend to lay a wreath at London Paddington’s iconic war memorial on Platform 1.  More than 100 wreaths were taken by train to the capital as part of the Poppies to Paddington operation.

Barbara said, “It was wonderful to be involved and a wonderful gesture from GWR. To think that a little part of Neath, Port Talbot and Bridgend could be represented in this way was fantastic, and it was lovely to see wreaths from other parts of the network arriving by train.”

Association member Lesley Iannerelli also took a wreath via LNER to lay on behalf of the Association to King’s Cross station.  She said on social media that she was “very proud” to be carrying a memorial wreath from Edinburgh to London.
