The Nation’s Thank You - The People’s Procession
The Image Library
On 11 November 1918, guns fell silent on the Western Front for the first time in four years. At home, this news was greeted with relief and joy, resulting in the spontaneous ringing of church bells which had been silent throughout the four year conflict. More than 700,000 British soldiers died in the First World War and the events of 11 November will remember and give thanks for their sacrifice.
The day will begin with the National Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph which will remain unchanged and remember those who have died from all conflicts since the First World War. The customary Two Minutes' Silence will be observed from 11.00 am.
Following the Royal British Legion’s Veterans’ March Past, 10,000 members of the public will take part in A Nation’s Thank You - The People’s Procession.
The procession past the Cenotaph is an opportunity for the public to give thanks to a generation who endured and sacrificed so much.
