  • Remembrance Day event at the Club

    Armistice Commemoration

    At 11am on Remembrance Sunday 2018, the club paid a poignant tribute to its members who were killed in the First World War.

    Our two predecessor clubs, which rowed the same stretch of river – the Taff and the Cardiff Rowing Clubs – lost 18 members during the course of that war.

    We joined rowing clubs the length and breadth of the country to commemorate them by holding a club blade for each member lost during the Great War.

    Their names are commemorated on the memorial boards in our clubhouse and are listed below.

    During the short ceremony, we read out their names and Megan Leitch read ‘In Flanders Fields’ by the Canadian poet, John McCrae.

    We then observed the two minutes silence.

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

    At the going down of the sun and in the morning

    We will remember them”

    From ‘For the Fallen’, Laurence Binyon

  • Remembrance Sunday : WW1 100th anniversary

    Remembrance Sunday this year has a particular poignancy as it is the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

    Eighteen members of our predecessor clubs, the Taff and Cardiff Rowing Clubs, were killed in the course of that conflict. Their names can be seen on the commemorative Boards at our Club House.

    Following a request from the Thames region, all clubs in the UK are being asked to join with them in an act of remembrance at 11am on 11th November called ‘Blades of Remembrance’. Members will be standing in front of the club and will display a club blade to commemorate each member lost to war, before the 2 minutes silence.

    ‘When you go Home, tell them of us and say, For your Tomorrow, we gave our Today’

    John Maxwell Edmunds, 1916
