Chamber Choir perform at dedication of memorial wall

The Royal Hospital School Chamber Choir travelled to Leros Barracks in Canterbury, Kent, to sing at the dedication, blessing and unveiling of a new memorial wall.

The invitation came from Capt Daniel Launder, a former pupil of the Royal Hospital School, who is the adjutant of the 3rd Battalion, The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment (PWRR) based at Leros Barracks. The wall was built to commemorate 29 soldiers who have died in service since the formation of the regiment in 1992. The official dedication and blessing was on 19 January and 'Tigers' past and present were invited to remember and reflect.

The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment (PWRR) is the line-infantry regiment for the Home Counties that traces its origins to the Trained Bands of London in the 17th Century. It is the senior English Regiment of the Line and also the most decorated; having received a total of 57 Victoria Crosses across its history.
