THE BRAVEST MAN I KNOW - Terry Shuttleworth

PRAYERS - Rev Canon Geoffrey Allen

Let us pray: All shall say together Psalm 23:
The Lord is my shepherd: I shall not want
He will make me lie down In green pastures
And lead me beside still waters.
He will refresh my soul:
And guide me in right pathways for his name’s sake.
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil:
For you are with me,
Your rod and staff comfort me.
You spread your table before me
In the face of those who trouble me;
You have anointed my head with oil
And my cup will be full.
Surely your goodness and loving kindness
Will follow me all the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son; and to the Holy Spirit:
As it was in the beginning, is now, and shall be forever,


The Commendation

Let us commend our brothers Horace Gaulterus Graham Hogg, John Rose Proctor, James Shuttleworth and servicemen and women of all nationalities who are placed here in Moscowa General Cemetery, to the mercy of our Maker and Redeemer.

Heavenly Father, by your mighty power you gave us life, and in your love have given new life in Christ Jesus, we entrust all these souls to your merciful keeping, in the faith of Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who died and rose again to save us and is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in glory for ever. Amen.

All shall say together The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory
For ever and ever. Amen

Onze Vader

Onze Vader die in de hemel zijt,
Uw naam worde geheiligd. Uw koninkrijk kome.
Uw wil geschiede, op aarde zoals in de hemel.
Geef ons heden ons dagelijks brood, en vergeef ons onze schulden zoals
ook wij onze schuldenaars vergeven.
En leid ons niet in verzoeking, maar verlos ons van de boze. Want van U is het koninkrijken de kracht en de heerlijkheid
in eeuwigheid. Amen.

Collect of the Royal Air Force

Almighty God, who has promised that they who wait upon thee shall renew their strength and mount up with wings, as eagles, we commend to thy fatherly protection all who serve in the Royal Air Force. Uplift and support us in our endeavour, that we may be a safeguard unto our most gracious Sovereign Lady Queen Elizabeth and a sure defence to our homeland. Help us to fulfil our several duties with honour, goodwill and integrity, and grant that we may prove to be worthy successors of those who by their valour and sacrifice did nobly save their day and generation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

HIGH FLIGHT (An Airman’s Ecstacy) - Piers Eady

O God of power and might, whose all-prevailing energy is the strength of nature and man, inspire, we pray Thee, us Thy servants of the Royal Air Force with the quickening spirit of goodwill, that as honest craftsmen, seeking only the good of all in peace or war, we may glorify Thee both in the work of our hands and the example of our fellowship; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Last Post

TWO minute silence


(During the Last Post, two Minute Silence and Reveille all stand to attention. Officers in Uniform salute and remain at the salute until the first sounds of the Reveille)

"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."
Response All: "We will remember them."

Laying of wreaths and flowers

Remembrance Crosses & Flowers will also be placed on all the Allied graves.
