Old standard to be retired in church

On Sunday, September 24th the Dun Laoghaire branch of the Royal British Legion will be retiring their old standard (ceremonial flag) and dedicating a new standard during the 10.30 am service at St Paul’s.  The war memorials in the Side Chapel have been moved together and cleaned, as the standard will be placed between them. It is hoped that some family members related to those whose names are commemorated on the memorials will attend the service. Such an event, as far as we know, has never happened in this country, and it’s thanks to the Rector and the Select Vestry for their support for this event.
