FORMER Chief Petty Officer John Greacen will be the guest speaker at tomorrow's Remembrance Day service at the Cenotaph, Warwick.

Mr Greacen is known throughout the district rural residents as a former wool producer from Cement Mills who semi-retired to Wheatvale some years ago.

The service, to remember soldiers from all wars who paid the supreme sacrifice, will take place at the cenotaph from 10.40am tomorrow and will involve students from both Warwick Central and Warwick East state schools.

One group of students will recite the First World War poem, In Flanders Fields, written from the battlefields of northern Europe by Dr John McCrae, of the Canadian Medical Corps.

The other group will recite the more recently penned Rupert McCall poem, The Pledge.

The Remembrance Day Service will also feature bagpipe playing by Scots-PGC musician Tamar Standfield-Roche and bugler Brenan Babington.

Members of the public and students are invited to lay wreaths during the service, alongside ex-service organisations and community groups.
