Commemorating the Battle of Jutland and the Battle of the Somme

Last Sunday was one of those occasions when Lynn and I needed and wanted to be in two places at once.

At Chester Cathedral there was a service commemorating the Battle of Jutland and the Battle of the Somme, whilst in Frodsham we celebrated Heritage Weekend at St Laurence's with afternoon tea and a music concert.

The Service at Chester Cathedral was poignant and very moving.  The service paper included accounts of the Battle of the Somme and the Battle of Jutland - as well as commemorating the service and sacrifice of 16 year old Jack Cornwell VC who served on HMS Chester.
