Remembrance in 2022

In 2022 we are remembering and commemorating military and civilian service.

Service, the act of defending and protecting the nation’s democratic freedoms and way of life, is rarely without cost for those who serve. Physical, mental or emotional injury or trauma; the absence of time with family; or the pressures and dangers that come from serving, highlight why the Remembrance of service is so important.

This year we are exploring the concept of service through a variety of anniversaries and events including the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War and the 78th anniversary of D-Day, as well as Commonwealth Day, South Asian Heritage Month and Black History Month.

Armed Forces today

The Armed Forces continue to play a vital role in Britain today, at home and overseas. From peacekeeping and disaster relief, to helping in the fight against Covid-19 we will remember the contribution of those currently serving in the Armed Forces.

Education resources

Our Teaching Remembrance resources explain the meaning and impact of service. They explore what service is, the diversity of those who serve from Britain and the Commonwealth, and highlight lesser known types of service.
Teaching Remembrance

Service and sacrifice remain at the heart of our national Remembrance traditions.

Whether remembering individually or as part of your community, whether you’re remembering in a place of worship, in a natural environment like the Remembrance Glade or at home, we invite you to keep Service at the forefront in your Remembrance activities.
