Remembrance Sunday

Every year, the British Legion calls on the nation to unite in commemorating Remembrance Sunday.
On Sunday 10 November 2019, the National Service of Remembrance will be held at the Cenotaph on Whitehall, London.

Starting at 11am, the service will commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women involved in the two World Wars and later conflicts.

Remember and honour

Every year the nation unites to make sure that no-one is forgotten and to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.
Numerous cities across the country dedicate a day to distributing poppies and getting the public involved through activities and entertainment.
This year, Poppy Days are taking place in London, Bristol, Manchester and Birmingham. There are lots of ways to get involved on the British Legion website :

In Flanders Fields

By John McCrae

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
