Millwall remembers

Remembrance commemorations at The Den...

8 November 2021

This past Saturday - before The Lions took on Derby County in the Sky Bet Championship - Millwall Football Club remembered.

Before the action on the pitch got underway, the Bugler - Cpl Jake Pugsley of The Rifles - and wreath carriers - Gnr Conor Joe Parker of the 47th Regiment Royal Artillery and Chief Petty Officer Tim ‘Bomber’ Mills of HMS Excellent - led the teams out before placing wreaths in the centre-circle. Both captains also carried wreaths.

Two further wreaths were laid behind the goal at the Cold Blow Lane end by Chief Petty Officer Martin ‘Eddie’ Edwards, on behalf of Submariners, and Danny O’Callaghan, in memory of his brother, Private Lee O’Callaghan, the Millwall fan from Bermondsey killed in Iraq in August 2004.

Around 40 guests from across the Army and Navy and were positioned around the perimeter of the pitch for the pre-match activity, which then saw the Last Post played.
 
There were pre-match collections around the ground to raise money for the Royal British Legion - with a final total raised to be announced in the coming days - whilst there are still other Poppy Range merchandise available from the Lions Store - click here to purchase
 
The Lions wore poppies on their shirts, which are now up for auction, with all monies raised going to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal
