Remembrance Sunday November 13th

The Cenotaph.

British Legion

Remember to buy a poppy before Remembrance Sunday and help support our servicemen. Poppies are sold or given for donations up until Remembrance Sunday. Funds raised are used to help veterans of the armed forces. The poppy was inspired by the poem In Flanders Fields written by John McCrae.


The Cenotaph lies in Whitehall close to Downing Street. The memorial takes centre stage on the second Sunday in November. Two minutes silence takes place at 11am to commemorate the end of the First World War when an armistice came into to effect at the 11th hour of the 11th day on the 11th month in 1918.
