'As the Member of Parliament for Aldershot, home of the British Army, and a Churchwarden of the Royal Garrison Church in that town I am acutely aware of the sacrifices which soldiers and their families continue to make. Through my constituency duties and having served on the frontbenches for 10 years, 2 of which as a Minister in the Ministry of Defence, I have attended many formal Acts of Remembrance, including in theatre, and I understand the importance of ensuring clergy have the very best resources to fulfil this essential role. I have known the author, Padre Elliott, over many years and I am glad his long experience as an Army Chaplain is made available in this excellent book.' -- Sir Gerald Howarth MP
'Even if the people of our world were to discover how to live together in peace and harmony, we would still need to remember and to remind ourselves of those whose courage and sacrifice made it all possible. In the event, sadly, our world seems no less violent or unstable than it was when the first edition of Brian Elliott's book was published. Its resources have been much valued and remain a vital liturgical and spiritual inspiration both for those who continue to lead such ceremonies, and those who wish quietly and individually to reflect and remember. I warmly commend this book.' -- The Rt Revd Dr Stephen Venner DL, Bishop to HM Forces
