Harry Leach 10th Nov, 2018

BOYS BRIGADE member Paul Hatton will play a bugle used during The Great War when he performs at Catshill’s annual Remembrance Parade.

Paul, who has played at every annual commemoration in the village since he was 13,

He said: “To mark the Centenary of the First World War I wanted to do something slightly different and I’ve managed to get my hand on this great instrument.”

In years to come Paul hopes to pass on the torch to his younger children but says they are too young at the moment.

The parade, organised by the Royal British Legion, will start at Catshill Working Men’s Club on Meadow Road with people arriving just before 10am.

After a short service at the club the parade will head towards the Catshill War Memorial where the names of local people who lost their life in conflict will be read out and a wreath laying ceremony will take place.

Secretary of Royal British Legion Lickey End, Darren Lacey, said: “We want to thank Paul immensely for his amazing achievement and the time he has served us.”
