Marking Remembrance Day

The nation fell silent as HRH The Queen and members of the Royal Family joined the traditional Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph in London on 12 Nov.

There was a two-minute silence observed nationally and wreaths were laid commemorating those Servicemen and women killed in all conflicts since the First World War.

“I am proud to stand alongside members of the Armed Forces and veterans at the Cenotaph to reflect on those who have made the ultimate sacrifice,” said Gavin Williamson, Defence Secretary.

“On Remembrance Sunday we remember all conflicts including our heroes from more recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Around the globe there are currently thousands of troops deployed in 25 operations in more than 30 countries, often putting themselves in danger to make us safer and more secure at home.”

This year, HRH The Queen viewed the ceremony from a balcony of the nearby Foreign & Commonwealth Office, alongside HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.

The Prime Minister also attended the service along with Defence Secretary, Gavin Williamson, and other members of the Cabinet, former Prime Ministers, The Chiefs of Staff and over 700 regular and reserve personnel.

For the Royal Family, Her Majesty’s wreath was laid on her behalf by HRH The Prince of Wales. Wreaths were also laid by HRH The Duke of Cambridge, HRH Prince Henry of Wales, HRH The Duke of York, HRH The Earl of Wessex, HRH The Princess Royal and HRH The Duke of Kent.

Following the ceremony, thousands of veterans from the Second World War and more recent conflicts such as Iraq and Afghanistan, marched past the Cenotaph.

The Armed Forces also marked Remembrance wherever they were in the world, from guarding NATO’s eastern border to striking Daesh in Syria.

This year’s service also commemorated the centenary of the Battle of Passchendaele, where the fields of Flanders saw enormous bravery and vast sacrifice.

Their list of achievements includes winning the Williams Cup in successive years (2018 and 2019), the only team to have their name on the trophy to date (taking into consideration the cancelled events in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID), they took second place in the Inter Corps Championships and numerous podium places across Senior, Masters, Grand Masters and the Team Categories every year. E-cycling popularity during the COVID restrictions, provided further opportunity to demonstrate their ability, with the RLC Ladies’ team leading the way in the Army Cycling Union e-racing series on Zwift. They have recorded consistent podium places and have been commended as the only Corps to field a full ladies’ team across the race series. The RLC fielded approximately a third of the ladies competing across the 2021/22 race series. ... See MoreSee Less
