Remembrance Day 2016

Orb Works Ceremony

Suzy Bowers

On 11th November 2016, we were invited to attend the Armistice Day service at the Orb Steel Works.

The Orb Works arranged for several members of the men’s families to meet us there, it was great pleasure and privilege to meet up and hear the stories from the family members themselves.

As we stood in front of the memorial waiting for 11 o’clock we could see the steel workers making their way out of the mills to the memorial, dressed in their bright safety gear, to remember steel workers who had died some 100 years ago, it was a very moving scene.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Orb Works for their help in organising everything
