Remembrance Sunday

Remembrance Sunday

Sun 13 Nov 2016

The national service of Remembrance takes place at The Cenotaph in London on Sunday 13 November, with local ceremonies also taking place across the country. Check the local weather forecast for your area.

Remembrance Sunday takes place on the second Sunday of November each year to commemorate the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and of civilians in times of war, specifically since the First World War. The national service is attended by the Queen, MPs and former prime ministers, along with representatives from the armed forces, the Merchant Air and Navy, and Fishing Fleets.

Armistice Day, also known as Poppy Day or Remembrance Day, is observed by a two minute silence on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month to commemorate the armistice signed in France in 1918 between the allies and Germany. Although two minutes of silence are observed on 11 November itself, the main observance is Remembrance Sunday. Traditionally, poppies are worn and wreaths of poppies are laid on war memorials.

Poppy Appeal

The poppy emblem was chosen for Remembrance Day because of the poppies that eventually bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of World War I.

Are you wearing a poppy? You can make donations to the Royal British Legion.

The Royal British Legion is a charity that offers support to those who have served or who are currently serving in the armed forces. The donations made to the Poppy Appeal each year enable the work of the charity to support the service men and women, and their families, by offering the support they need.
