WW1 Soldier Remembered by Resolven Family on Whitehall March


On Sunday, Pam Jones (nee Welbourne) and her daughter Joanne will be taking part in ‘The Nation’s Thank You’ procession in London as part of the Armistice 100 commemorations.

The march will be a unique opportunity for members of the public to take part and pay their respects to all those that served in the First World War. The Nation’s Thank You procession allows 10,000 members of the public, who were selected by random ballot, to join a procession past the Cenotaph in Central London, to pay their respects and help express the nations thanks to the generation that served, and those that never returned.

Pam and Joanne will be marching in memory of all of those who served and died in the Great Battle but particularly in memory of William Welbourne – Pam’s grandfather, Joanne’s great-grandfather. William served with the Welsh Regiment and saw fierce battle in France.

After the Royal British Legion Veterans’ March Past on Sunday, the Nation’s Thank You public procession will take place past the Cenotaph and pay its respects to those that served.
