Remembrance Sunday

Aberavon RFC paid tribute to those who sacrificed their lives.

Remembrance Sunday is a national opportunity to remember the service and sacrifice of all those that have defended our freedoms and protected our way of life. Remembrance Day and Remembrance Sunday first started in 1919 as a way to pay tribute to those who gave their lives in the First World War (1914-1918). The traditions have continued into the modern day with nationwide events and the annual Poppy Appeal becoming synonymous with them.

This morning, our club captain Joe Gage laid a poppy wreath at Talbot Memorial Park.
