Steve Owen-Hughes, Assistant Chief Fire Officer, Surrey Fire and Rescue

“We are very proud to be here and to take part in today’s tournament and to show our support.  As an organisation Surrey Fire and Rescue is a member of the Surrey Civilian Military Partnership Board and a lot of our men are either ex-servicemen or are currently serving in the Reserves.  Our crews attended the fire at Clandon Park where we helped to rescue the Colours of the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment.  We know too that more than 50 fire fighters in Surrey went to the First World War and none came back.  Some of those fell in the Battle of the Somme.”
