Oldest Veteran To March At The Cenotaph Is 103

Posted on November 8, 2018

Former Army sergeant Ron Freer will lead more than 100 comrades who also lost their sight when he attends the memorial in London on Sunday. Confirmed by the Royal British Legion as the oldest veteran due to attend, he will be representing charity Blind Veterans UK. He said this was a “huge honour” and the Remembrance commemorations hold a “special significance” for him as he remembers his own father’s death in battle on September 4 1918. The former postmaster, who lives in Kent, paid his respects at his father’s graveside earlier this year when he travelled to the Dernancourt Communal Cemetery in France with his family to lay a wreath.
