SAS Regimental Virtual Remembrance Service
A Virtual Service of Remembrance at Hereford Cathedral
COVID-19 – UPDATE NUMBER 5 – DATED 5th NOVEMBER 2020
FROM THE REGIMENTAL ASSOCIATION
We now find ourselves back in a national lockdown. Scientific data published by the Government indicating that the ‘second wave’ will be more severe than the first in the spring.
Accordingly and in support of the national effort, we will reduce staffing from Monday 9th November 2020, although the office will be manned five days per week. The Association e-mail address will be monitored seven days a week so will be the best means of communication for routine business. In the event of an urgent need to speak to a member of the team, please follow the office answerphone instructions.
We would like to remind members that, in these unprecedented times, please contact us if you or someone you know, are experiencing welfare or severe financial difficulty, we will be able to help.
Unfortunately, the new restrictions have meant that our attendance at Westminster Abbey has been cancelled. Our Regimental crosses and poppy wreaths were laid at Westminster Abbey on the 2nd November. We have conducted a ‘virtual’ Remembrance Service which has been recorded and can be found on this website. The names of all those members we have lost between 7th November 2019 and 4th November 2020 are given in this Service.
We would like to remind everyone that we have copies of the ‘Ascension’ Book and 75th Anniversary prints still available.

Purchase Ascension, the SAS memorial in Hereford Cathedral. This beautifully illustrated hardback book tells the story of the commission in the words of the Regiment, the cathedral community and the artist.
