We were delighted to hear that our Head Boy, Elliott, represented the community of Limavady at the recent Great Pilgrimage 90 (GP90) which was organised by The Royal British Legion. GP90 was a recreation of the great pilgrimage of 1928 when thousands of relatives of those who fought in WW1 visited the sites where their sons (or daughters), fathers, grandfathers, nephews, uncles and cousins fought and died; so many of whom had no known grave.
Elliott carried the Limavady RBL Standard wearing his cadet uniform and he was the only cadet from N. Ireland who attended.
Mr George Black, the immediate past Chairman of the RBL in N. Ireland paid this tribute to Elliot:
“When you get a young man like Elliott on parade it makes you have hope for the future of remembrance. He is a proud, polite, well mannered, mature and well turned out young man who we all should be very proud of. It was a pleasure to get to know him and a privilege to have been at GP90 with and all the other youth who represented N Ireland youse are a credit to yourselves and your families. Thanks to you all”
Well done, Elliott. An amazing achievement and experience.
