The Royal Welsh Fusiliers
The Unveiling and Dedication of a Memorial
Zandvoorde, 26th October 2014

The Memorial was unveiled by Brigadier Philip Napier, OBE, Colonel of The Royal Welsh. The service of dedication was conduced by The Reverend Richard Morgan Llewellyn, CB, OBE, DL and The Reverend Nigel Kinsell, CF.
The ceremony was enhanced by the prescence of the Household Cavalry who had earlier held a service at the Household Cavalry Memorial a few hundred yards further down the road. Their colourful and wonderful band entertained the crowd and played during the ceremony. A large number of locals and World War One enthusiasts collected in the centre of the village in unseasonally warm and beautiful weather.

The Royal Welch Fusiliers Regimental Collect was read:

Eternal god, whose strength raised up our Lord Jesus Christ from the dea, uphold, we pray thee, the ancient valour of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, that we may ever endure hardship after his example and may rise with him to shine as the sun in thy kingdom, through the same Jesus Christ our Lord.

That was followed by The Royal Welsh Collect:
Eternal Go, our heavenly Father, who gave your Son Jesus Christ to die for us and raised him up from the dead; uphold, we pray, the ancient valour of the Royal Welsh, that we, choosing death rather than dishonour; may ever follow the path of duty after His example and by His grace be found worthy of your eternal Kingdom; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord.
