Ceremony of Remembrance from the Cenotaph


Nicholas Witchell sets the scene in Whitehall as the nation remembers the sacrifices made by so many in two World Wars and more recent conflicts. The traditional music of remembrance is played by the massed bands. After the Last Post and two minutes' silence, Her Majesty the Queen lays the first wreath on behalf of the nation and Commonwealth. The Bishop of London leads a short Service of Remembrance. During the March Past, veterans and those involved in present conflicts share their thoughts.
