Paying our Respects – Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday

Hilary Meredith Solicitors will be observing a two-minute silence at 11 am today to remember the nation’s war dead.

People gathered at war memorials and in schools, offices and other public places across the UK will pause for two minutes to commemorate the moment the guns fell silent for peace at the end of World War One, on 11 November 1918.

Prince Harry will read Rupert Brooke’s poem The Soldier, written at the beginning of the war, as part of the service at the National Memorial Arboretum.

The Royal British Legion charity has organised dozens of events for today following weeks of fundraising by selling poppies.

On Remembrance Sunday members of the firm will be attending ceremonies at war memorials, cenotaphs and churches throughout the country as we remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.
