Millwall Remember: Fitting tribute

10 November 2014

Take a look back at an historic day

Once again Lions fans did themselves and the club proud on Saturday as they, and everyone associated with Brentford Football Club, helped Millwall produce a very special day to commemorate Remembrance weekend and pay tribute to current and former ex-servicemen and women.

The Headley Court Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre in Surrey will shortly receive a significant financial boost when the total money raised by sales of the special camouflage replica kits, donations and bucket collections is calculated, and the Headley Court personnel who were honoured on the day spoke about how moved they were by the whole occasion.

Present pitchside to pay their respects to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice during a century of conflict since the outbreak of the First World War, were veterans from campaigns dating back to the Second World War.

A dozen former Lions stars paid particular homage to four Millwall players, John Williams, Joe Dines, George and Charles Green, killed in action during the First World War.

Over 13,000 Lions and Bees fans then observed a minute's respectful silence before kick-off as the whole day honoured the bravery of countless thousands who have served this country and its allies from the Great War to the present day.

We do remember them.
