After the service we had the chance to meet the Secretary of State for Defence Ben Wallace: for me, this was a personal highlight. Throughout the day we were able to talk with many of the Widows and hear their fascinating stories. We were also lucky enough to be allowed access to 10 Downing Street, this was a very exciting moment that we shall never forget! It was a very enjoyable day and was a beautiful way to hold such an important service.
We are all touched and grateful to have been part of the ceremony and it was such a special service, marking 50 years since the founding of the WWA and commemorating a day where all survivors can mark their respect and remember loved ones. It was a great honour and was a very humbling occasion.
