Remembrance Day

Every Man Remembrance Statue in Trafalgar Square

Remembrance Sunday
Red Poppies Drop Softly on the Every Man Remembrance Statue

Remembrance Sunday falls on the 2nd Sunday of the month, the Sunday nearest to Armistice Day 11th November.  It is a time of remembrance and commemoration to the contribution of service men/women and civilians in the first 2 World Wars and later conflicts.  Red poppies have become a metaphor for Remembrance Sunday.  Across the UK Remembrance services are held at local war memorials in most cities and towns.

In London wreaths are laid in Whitehall at the Cenotaph.  There is a two minute silence to remember the fallen and those who gave their lives.  It is a sombre and moving occasion.

As part of Remembrance I have posted a photo of the Every Many Remembrance Statue.  The statue is sited in a perspex triangle and poppies are blown through the space.  It is a moving tribute to those fallen.
