November 2017

Once again, on behalf of the family, the Trust will be remembering the 48 Cobbolds and all family members who died for our freedom in two World Wars.

Our announcement will appear on Saturday 11th November in the Daily Telegraph under the heading IN MEMORIAM – THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE.

Additionally, we have planted an inscribed poppy in the Flanders Field of Remembrance at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission Ypres -Menin Gate – Memorial.

Closer to home we are also planting an inscribed poppy in the Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey.  For those who wish to view, it will be found in the section named -British Army (c-F) – Plot 332.  This Field of Remembrance is accessible to the public from 1pm on Thursday 9th November and thereafter daily from 9am to 4pm until 19th November.

The Trust ardently believes that it has a duty to remember all family members who gave their lives and those bearing the name Cobbold are listed at KING & COUNTRY.

All the fallen of the 1st World War are remembered by the sounding of Last Post at the Menin Gate in Ypres at 8pm every night of the year, come rain or shine.  This ceremony started on 1st July 1828 and this year will be the 27,712th time that the ceremony will have been performed.  Our pictures show the Menin Gate and the 8 buglers.
