TURNING OF THE LEAVES AT THE LIVERPOOL ANGLICAN CATHEDRAL 2011
In The Liverpool Anglican Cathedral there are three books containing the names of those who died in the service of The King's Regiment and the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment in each of the two world wars and in post war conflicts particularly in Korea, Northern Ireland, Iraq & Afghanistan. These books are permanently open for visitors to the Cathedral to see. Four times each year as part of the Evensong Service the pages or leaves of each book are turned. The Regiment is represented by the Liverpool Branch of the King's Regiment Association, on each occasion. Occasionally relatives of those who died attend and as well as visitors to the Cathedral, usually people with connections to the City.
As part of the Evensong Service three members of the Association are escorted to the books and each turns over a page in each book. After the 'Turning', three of the names of those appearing are selected and are published in the Associations bi-monthly newsletter. The Service starts at 5.30pm. Once the Service is over at about 6pm those attending usually inspect the three books before leaving the Cathedral. Everyone is welcome to attend.
