The guest speaker at the Remembrance Day service at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School was someone who knows the School well, and who also appreciates the sacrifice made by those in the armed forces. 2nd Lieutenant Jordan Gask has achieved a lot in the 6 years since leaving the School in 2010. The former Head Boy went on to gain a First Class degree in Civil Engineering from Newcastle University, followed by Army officer training at The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. He is now in the Corps of Royal Engineers and undergoing further training before his next posting.
Lt Gask gave an address which highlighted the human stories of some of the soldiers who lost their lives in the Great War. When so many lives are lost in a conflict, it is sometime easy to forget the impact of every loss.
During the service the Advanced Ensemble performed the Anthem, Nimrod by Edward Elgar.
