Remembrance Sunday, Filey 2020

In this strangest of years, there will be no parade to the War Memorial, no lowering of heads, no solemn silence. However, the fallen of Filey will be remembered, around fireplaces, in solitary moments and, in some cases, memories, albeit increasingly distant.

From the town’s first casualty in World War One, Private Thomas Jenkinson, who was killed in 1915, to Private Michael Francis Davis, who died in Aden in 1964, they will all be remembered.

For full details of all the men of Filey who lay down their lives for their country, the Roll of Honour website is an excellent resource.

Private Michael Francis Davis, Parachute Regiment, who died 5th May 1964 aged just 21. At rest in Ma Ala Cemetery, Aden.
