Never Such Innocence at Westminster Abbey

ROSES, lilies, and heather rather than the customary poppies decorated the grave of the Unknown Warrior in Westminster Abbey on Sunday, during a service to commemorate the Armistice of 1918.

Among those who read prayers were Jasleen Singh, who won the Never Such Innocence competition for her poem “The Indian Soldier”, inspired by her two great-great-grandfathers, among the 1.3 million Indian soldiers who fought for the British Empire; and Rebecca Pinkerton, a Cadet Corporal in Armagh.
