Every year in November, we remember those servicemen and women who lost their lives in the line of duty. This year, Vernon observed Remembrance Sunday at St Paul's Church in Daybrook and was honoured to lay a wreath on the memorial.
Today, on Remembrance Day itself, Vernon was invited to join staff, pupils and important guests at Carlton Central Junior School for a special assembly. He is pictured above with a Chelsea Pensioner and members of the Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry amongst others.
Vernon was honoured to receive a badge from the Sherwood Rangers featuring a Union Jack flag and inscribed with 'Carlton Central Junior School' (pictured on his lapel). He also spent some time speaking with NottsTV about the fitting tributes paid to our fallen service people.
