Remembrance Sunday 2019

Every year, the Legion calls on the nation to unite in commemorating Remembrance Sunday.

On Sunday 10 November 2019, the National Service of Remembrance was held at the Cenotaph on Whitehall, London. 

Starting at 11am, the service honoured the service and sacrifice of our Armed Forces community, the British and Commonwealth veterans, the Allies that fought alongside us and the civilian servicemen and women involved in the two World Wars and later conflicts.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning. We remembered them.

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.

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.

Each year, up to 10,000 veterans participate in the March Past.

Places to take part in the March Past on Remembrance Sunday 2019 was allocated through associations.

The number of people who can take part in the March Past is limited to 10,000 people due to capacity and the amount of time participants can reasonably be expected to stand. Places on the march were prioritised for people who are directly affected by service with the Armed Forces: 

  • Military and civilian men and women from the UK and the Commonwealth that served the Crown on Military Operations
  • Bereaved Spouses and bereaved first-generation descendants of the above
