Remembrance Sunday 2020

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

On Sunday 8 November 2020, the National Service of Remembrance is planned to be held at the Cenotaph on Whitehall in London. 

Places to take part will again be allocated through ex-service and related civilian associations. Initial communications were sent out to associations in April 2020 to gather expressions of interest. 

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are continually reviewing our events and to ensure better clarity on the situation in November, the Legion will communicate its full plans for this year’s Cenotaph dispersal in early autumn. 

Thank you for your continued patience while we navigate new ways of working in these unprecedented times.

Pensioners prepare for Cenotaph March

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.

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

The number of people is limited to 10,000 due to the capacity in Whitehall, and the amount of time participants can reasonably be expected to stand. 

More information will be made available on our website in April 2020.
