Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance - 2009

The Royal British Legion's annual Festival of Remembrance pays tribute to all victims of war and conflict in the presence of HM The Queen and members of the Royal Family. Jamie Cullum, Hayley Westenra, the Soldiers and Faryl Smith perform alongside the Massed Bands of the Household Division, the Band of HM Royal Marines and the Band of the Royal Air Force and Salon Orchestra. The lesson is read by HRH The Princess Royal. The Service of Remembrance includes the traditional two minute silence as thousands of poppy petals fall from the roof of the Royal Albert Hall, each representing a life lost in war. Huw Edwards presents.
