Bedfordshire’s Royal British Legion Riders unveil memorial bench in Bedford

Remembrance Bench

The Bedfordshire Royal British Legion Riders Branch has unveiled a memorial bench along Bedford’s Embankment to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War One.

The group raised the money needed to purchase and install the bench which now sits in front of the war memorial by the River Great Ouse.

Speaking at the unveiling the group said it was “their contribution to the county of Bedfordshire and will serve as a reminder to all of the sacrifices that have been made.”
