The band were asked to play for this remembrance service at Chandler’s Ford Methodist Church. The band received many positive comments, particularly Polly, who played the
Last Post “like it’s played on TV” said one member of the congregation.

The service also included a first hand account of being in a Japanese PoW camp. Babs, 9 at the time, was interred for 3 years. She said that even though it was a terrible time, the kindness of one Japanese shone through when he managed to find extra supplies of milk for one of the babies who was dying of malnourishment.
